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
