You have kicked off your shoes and socks and are busy doing almost nothing at all. Imagine that your mother asks you to pick up your dirty socks and your shoes and take them into your bedroom. You stay still, as if she has not uttered a word. The idea of moving a muscle seems very difficult. You are suffering from a royal case of INERTIA! Penny Norman, Ph.D. again strikes gold with an engaging science kit based on the properties of motion and gravity. Motion covers many key concepts, including Newton's Laws of Motion and many others. These concepts and accompanying projects are presented in a truly winsome manner, geared specifically to children aged 8 and older. Colorful illustrations seal the deal for a top-notch combination of learning and fun.

For ages 8 and up.
