Overview

"...Easy to duplicate, [these experiments] demonstrate the intended principles and encourage critical thinking. The author's style is lighthearted but clear."--School Library Journal

The force is with us--and these experiments prove it. Whether kids are creating soap-powered fish or sending potato pieces flying into the sky, every activity is as educational as it is entertaining. Demonstrate inertia with a super-amazing Card Shot trick that seems magical but is a simple matter of science. Locate the center of gravity by checking out where a cardboard rocket ship lands (there's a picture to trace to help you make the rocket), and create your own "great salt lake" in the kitchen to demonstrate buoyancy. Ordinary, easy-to-find materials are all you need to get moving on these fun-filled investigations.

    Great book for science projects

    If you are looking for an idea for a simple science project, this is the book. It is full of all sorts of simple and inexpensive activities that cover all sorts of concepts in force and motion. Highly recommended for both your classroom and home. I have the full set of three books both on my classroom library shelf and at home for my son.
