Publishers Description How are mountains formed? What makes the air we breathe? What causes the ocean waves? Now you can learn the answers to these and other questions about the earth, sea, and air through 101 fun, safe, low-cost experiments and activities that can be performed at home or in the classroom. In Earth Science for Every Kid, you'll use a tennis ball and a marble to demonstrate a solar eclipse. You'll make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to understand sedimentary rock formation. And, with the assistance of a Slinky(r) and a helper, you'll learn about the motion of water waves. Each of the 101 experiments is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation. Every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home.

Great for Young Children Oct 6, 2006
This book is wonderful. It gives you the experiments and provides explanations for the results. I have five and six year old sons and they love the experiments from this book. I'm buying it after renewing it at the library several times.
Great Teacher or Home Experiment Resource Apr 6, 2001
I am never disappointed by a Janice VanCleave Book!
This book lends itself well to experimenting with earth science using the scientific method. It outlines the purpose, materials needed, procedure, results expected, and explanation of results for each experiment. Experiments are included in the areas of space, rocks and minerals, movement of the earth's crust, erosion, atmosphere, weather, and ocean. The best thing is that they use common, easy to obtain materials!
