Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6–This visually appealing series encourages readers to explore the world around them. Each volume introduces its overarching concept and discusses the scientific method and the steps involved in using it. Then, six experiments each include an introduction to the principle being explored, questions to think about, a hypothesis, a materials list, step-by-step instructions, and a conclusion. Along the way there are reminders to record observations, and some additional questions to consider. Colorful splashes contain additional details. The books end with ideas for additional experiments. A note of caution: some of the activities include potentially dangerous materials such as ammonia or nails.
