Finally - a book on science experiments that follows the scientic method for a traditional science fair. This is an excellent resource for any teacher (or student) involved in a science project that uses the scientific process. This book offers 20 engaging project ideas in a very user friendly format. Each project page shares the following:
1. The project title 2. The problem in the form of a question 3. An example hypothesis 4. A list of steps to follow for the procedure 5. Conclusion statement 6. How the information can be used for real world application
Although this is a great read for students, it can also be a great place for teachers to spark ideas within their students (without necessarily sharing the book with them).
