A wonderful science suppliment Sep 23, 2001
This book is GREAT! It is filled with easy-to-do, fun experiments, many of which my 10 year-old homeschooler can do on his own. There are experiments in 5 different scientific areas of study which can easily be worked into the science programs - astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science and physics. My son looks forward to the days that we do the experiments from this book. It helps make science his favorite subject.
Perfect for home schoolers!!! Jun 27, 1999
I checked this book out at the library for my kids and loved it so much, I bought it! Easy but facinating experiments with stuff you have around the house. I'm using it as part of my home school curriculum. My 1st and 3rd graders love it!
