Overview

Vibrantly colorful pictures plus 150 creative crafts and entertaining experiments equal science fun for kids. From a hot air balloon to a primitive kiln, here's the hands-on way for children to learn all about the world around them. Every project will encourage the budding scientist and inventor, and sidebars throughout answer the important questions. This is just some of what they can do:

· The bird, bees and animals too: Construct an observation station to study close-to-home wildlife without scaring them away.
· Dig into Planet Earth: Create a "fossil" that looks a million years old.
· Map and measure: On the ground and up in the sky, chart where things are by making and using maps of all kinds, or assembling a cross staff to measure the altitude of stars just as the early explorers did.

They're perfect for science fairs, school projects, or just for the joy of discovery.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Science Smart: Cool Projects for Exploring the Marvels of the Planet Earth includes 150 hands-on projects and crafts that illustrate scientific principles, including making a solar oven, growing crystals, sand painting, mapmaking and more. Diagrams and color photos accompany the detailed directions. A companion volume, Nature Smart: Awesome Projects to Make with Mother Nature's Help, focuses on the natural world and on using recycled materials. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-This book combines three previously published titles, Geology Crafts for Kids (1998), Science Crafts for Kids (1997), and Geography Crafts for Kids (2002, all Lark). The original texts and photographs remain unchanged, with minimal reorganization of sections to prevent duplication. Step-by-step instructions and simple black-and-white illustrations clearly outline how to construct the projects, while color photographs make them attractive. Sidebars illuminate scientific concepts and present relevant, interesting tidbits. In the first section, the sidebars contain text laid over busy graphics, making them difficult to read. The projects are in large part difficult; numerous crafts require the use of sharp objects or tools, and adult assistance. Also, many require materials from hardware or art-supply stores. However, from a solar food dryer to a primitive kiln, the selection of crafts is outstanding. In trying to entice reluctant scientists, this title will likely bring success.-Jenna Gould, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
