Science Projects Young People
By following simple instructions, children at the elementary school level can easily perform these experiments at home or in the classroom. Each project is clearly outlined, and carefully drawn illustrations indicate what materials are needed and how to set up the experiment. (Parents will be happy to know that materials suggested for these research projects are safe, inexpensive and easily available.) By working with such common household items as a potato and a drinking straw, for example, researchers can learn how a tornado is able to drive a blade of dried grass into a tree trunk. This book is ideal for the child who enjoys discovering answers to original experiments and solving scientifically intriguing problems. Even more important, each of these projects may spur the eager investigator on to further explorations in the thrilling field of scientific research. 153 pages, Paperback, 5 3/8" x 8 3/8"
