Overview

Constructing stroboscopes and periscopes, looking through "holes" in their hands, and using water as a magnifying glass. These and the other fascinating activities in this inventive and whimsically illustrated book will captivate children eight and up as they learn about the principles, properties, and physics of light and optics while having FUN. The activities - complete with materials lists, step-by-step instructions, background information, explanations of results, and more - give kids hands-on opportunities to learn about basic physics principles involving light and optics. Most require only common household materials and take less than an hour to complete. For extra appeal, each project also includes scientific trivia. For parents and elementary school teachers who want to hook children on science - or simply to provide kids with enjoyable educational activities for rainy days or weekends - this book is a proven winner. Formerly a title in the successful Physics for Kids series, this new edition is thoroughly revised with lots of fresh activities and brand-new illustrations to catch and hold the interest of children.

Provides instructions for a variety of experiments introducing the study of light, its characteristics, sources, and uses.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
The stated mission of this publisher is: "Connecting kids, parents, and teachers through learning." And they really live up to that commitment in this book. Here are highly doable activities that use at-home materials and equipment. The most challenging piece of equipment to gather might be the sunny day that's needed for many of the activities. All the activities explore light-its properties and capabilities. And all the activities follow the format: Challenge (experimental goal); Do This (procedure); What Happened? (scientific explanation); and Guess What? (interesting related information). The activities in this book provide a great way for parents and teachers to help their kids see the light!
