Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Kids love to build things. This collection of activities is created around a discussion of a variety of machines and modes of transportation. The focus bounces from moveable type to jet planes, pianos, submarines and helicopters. The activities generally include creating a model out of paper. Jet planes and windmills are fairly common projects. Cutting up a tin can to make a rocket collage accompanies a discussion of gravity, rockets carrying the oxygen they need to burn fuel and engine drop off. A moon buggy is made out of the classroom/home standards—glue, cardboard boxes, tin foil and pipe cleaners. Micro-machines can be as small as four hundred-thousandths of an inch. The kids-related project is to decorate matchboxes and make a mini scooter and skateboard to fit inside the matchboxes. There are photos of all of the required supplies, machines under discussion and completed projects. This is a nice collection of art/science activities that are relatively easy to do with great results. Part of the "Arty Facts" series. 2002, Crabtree Publishing,
