Overview

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
For many children and their parents, science fair projects can introduce real angst. All too often the science fair project is left to the last minute, creating stress. This colorfully illustrated little book provides teachers, parents and children with a wide-range of potential science projects. The first part of the book addresses the background preparation and activities necessary to successfully complete a thoughtful science project. Concepts such as scientific method, research design, experimentation and data collection are all covered in a readable manner. The second section presents twenty-six potential experiments. Each experiment is described, including the materials and methods necessary to accomplish it both at an elementary and middle school level. Well-written and cleverly presented, this book is an excellent teaching and reference tool for science education. It will be helpful to many young students and should find a useful place in both family and classroom libraries. 2001, Sterling, $12.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
