Overview

Simple principles of electricity and magnetism come alive with these hands-on activities. Children can easily do these simple yet fascinating activities in static electricity, magnetic induction and polarity, conductors and insulators and more...with just a little help from parents or teachers using readily-available household materials. While rooted in solid scientific theory, these entertaining activities are geared towards children's interests, and can each be completed in less than one hour. No expertise in physics is required; everything is outlined in step-by-step instructions, a materials list, background material, and expected outcome of each experiment.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Filled with over twenty-five science activities that kids can do using materials from around the house, this book is an outstanding supplement to any science curriculum. Some of the projects include building a motor, creating a lemon battery, and making a compass. The projects are accompanied by easy to follow directions and black and white illustrations. Each activity concludes with a "Guess what?" statement geared to make the young scientists think about relevance to everyday life. Not only will children learn more about science theory, they will also be filled with feelings of independence and confidence. Also in the series are Light FUNdamentals, Mechanics FUNdamentals and Heat FUNdamentals.
