Overview

This hands-on science activity book for children 5 to 8 promotes health and safety through 70-plus creative projects, recipes, and experiments. Handwashing becomes automatic and germs become real when children see the once-invisible microbes on their hands thriving in the tomato-soup cultures they’ve prepared. They rush to brush after watching the effects of sugary drinks on a tooth. Nutrition and exercise are fun with treats like Triple-Decker Mouthfuls and games such as Exercise Bingo. Lego people and Silly Putty help to demonstrate the importance of seat belts and bike helmets, and safety becomes a priority as children chant important numbers, identify exits in buildings, and more. All the activities are tested in homes and classrooms to be sure they are safe, effective, and fun.

Teaches health and safety through over seventy creative projects, recipes, and experiments.
