Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Have you ever wondered what would happen if gravity disappeared? What if the Titanic had struck an iceberg while sailing in seas of oil and not water? What is "fabulous play gloop" and how do you make it? These and many other questions are presented in this wonderful hands-on approach to scientific inquiry. By offering experiments as learning opportunities, parents and teachers can make science come alive for youngsters and themselves. This book offers twenty-five scientific experiments that afford the participant insight into key postulates while also having fun. Each activity includes some background information about the main concept, a template for the experiment, resources for further study, and a recording approach to denote results and observations. The book embodies an approach to learning that emphasizes direct experience and constant inquiry. Participants are challenged to explain what they did, what they observed, and what they think about what happened. This analysis and synthesis approach challenges learners while also allowing them to "muck around" with science. By creating these opportunities this book is a wonderful resource for teachers and families who want children to understand and enjoy science. 2000, Barron's, Ages 9 to 14, $ 14.95. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck—Children's Literature

    Little Einsteins Everywhere

    If Janet Chahrour's, 'Flash! Bang! Pop! Fizz!' had been around when I was a kid in school, I'm sure my chemistry and physics grades would have been much higher. Who knows? I may have been the next Einstein! This is a wonderful book for students to learn how to appreciate the physical sciences and have a whole lot of fun while doing so. Chahrour drew from her many years experience as a science teacher to compile 25 different activities and experiments that children can perform using everyday household items. With amusing titles such as 'Whirligig Rocketry,' 'Pop Can Pedestal,' 'Portable Alarm,' 'Fabulous Play Goop,' and 'Your Dear Friend, Egbert,' children learn the basics about air pressure, density, chemical reactions, liquids, gases, gravity, motion and many other scientific concepts. In addition to clear, step-by-step instructions for each experiment, the book provides vocabulary lists and easy to understand explanations of the scientific principle under study. The book is an easy to read large format paperback, profusely illustrated in color, and contains guidelines for parents and teachers. Even though, I've been out of school much longer than I care to admit, I found Chahrour's book to be fascinating and fun. Although written for children from grades 5 to 9, it definitely appeals to children of all ages.

    Flash! Bang! Pop! Fizz! Delivers with a Fresh Format

    Flash! Bang! Pop! Fizz! is a science activity book with a fresh, friendly format. Imaginative color illustrations, jokes, and quotes draw the reader into a world that is both human and scientific. Activities deliver on their promise of being exciting. From creating instant meringue, to imploding soft drink cans, to exploring gravity, the activities are fun, spark the imagination, and build skills. Activities begin with step-by-step instructions but move on to open-ended investigations or full experiments. Materials are easy to find around the house or in the grocery store. Each chapter provides inviting, semi-structured space for recording data, making sketches, and posing questions. Unlike some books, the results are never given away in the directions. Clear explanations of the chemistry, physics, and engineering concepts are provided for each activity at the back of the book. The science content in these explanations is solid and accurate. While the explanations are geared to middle school readers, older and younger students can also benefit. Real-life examples are appropriate and interesting. A section called 'Thinking Like a Scientist' explains the approach of a good investigator. ¿A Note to Teachers¿ and ¿A Note to Parents¿ give tips for using the book both at school and at home. A graphing appendix shows how to make bar and line graphs. Indexes list the physical science concepts and the National Science Education Standards addressed by each activity. In short, Flash! Bang! Pop! Fizz! provides a balance of guidance and choice that leads the curious youngster to rewarding levels of discovery, understanding, and fun.
