Children's Literature
This instructional manual is targeted to preschool teachers who would like to incorporate science experiments into their curriculum or are looking for new ways to present concepts. The introduction discusses why it is important to teach science to preschoolers and the most effective ways to go about doing so. Suggestions on how to set up a classroom science center are also presented. The experiments are split into different categories such as the environment, animals, and the senses. Each experiment has an accompanying illustration to give the teacher an idea of the project. The principles that are covered in the experiment are outlined along with the materials needed and vocabulary to be discussed. The experiments are simply described in a bulleted list and an explanation of what the experiment is teaching is also provided at the bottom of the page. Additional books are referenced at the back of this manual. This is a well laid out book that effectively communicates science experiments and would be a wonderful resource for any preschool teacher or parent looking to educate their children more thoroughly about science and the world around them. 2004 (orig. 1981), Gryphon House, Ages adult parent/professional.
