Editorial Reviews

Similar in purpose and format to "Science Experiments On File" ["RBB" Je 1 89], "Nature Projects On File" contains "interesting, challenging, inexpensive, fun experiments covering a wide range of biological and environmental topics" for students in grades 4-12. The 74 experiments can be used by students independently or by teachers to supplement classroom texts. These easy projects are simply explained, enabling children to do many of them at home with minimum adult supervision Following the table of contents, an introduction, and safety guidelines, the projects are organized into eight sections: earth, weather, animals, plants, ecology, population, energy, and environmental quality. For each project there is a brief introduction, the time and materials needed, a reminder about safety precautions, and step-by-step instructions for conducting the experiment. An appendix lists the appropriate grade level for each experiment, but this information would be more useful within the project itself. The projects are enhanced by line drawings and include data tables on which students record their findings. Students are encouraged to photocopy the data tables before doing so. Each project concludes with analysis questions and instructs students to compare their findings with the author's in the "Our Findings" section near the back of the volume. The pollution section includes experiments that measure residues from cigarette smoke under adult supervision, corrosion caused by acid rain, and pollution in streams and rivers. The plant projects demonstrate how seeds are dispersed by humans and how to determine the age of trees, for example A section of identification charts precedes the appendixes and contains simple line drawings of worms, snails, and insects; animals found in ponds; cloud types; and mushrooms and toadstools. Appendixes identify the grade level of each project, list those projects that require adult supervision, state which projects can be done by individuals or by two or more persons, and list those that can be completed in one hour or less. An index refers users to section and project numbers Browsing through the projects makes even an adult reviewer curious about their outcomes. For instance, in building and observing a worm farm, what really happens to the separate soil layers? Incidentally, after this project is completed, students are instructed to "carefully return the worms by taking your worm farm outside and gently shaking out the contents onto soft ground." "Nature Projects On File" will be popular with teachers, students, and parents and is highly recommended for public and middle and high school libraries.
A wonderful collection of interesting, challenging, inexpensive experiments covering a wide range of biological and environmental topics, for students of all levels of ability and expertise, from grades 4 to 12, to do independently at home, in the school laboratory, or, in some cases, outdoors. The experiments, intended for students' independent use or for teachers as a supplement to the standard text, range from those that can be done in a class period with little preparation to those that take several weeks and involve precise techniques and creative problem solving. All of the entries are self-contained and copyright free (the collection comes looseleaf on heavy stock in a rugged 3-ring binder). With 288 pages of simple, precise line drawings. Annotation c.
