Reviews - What do customers think about Janice VanCleave's Help! My Science Project Is Due Tomorrow! Easy Experiments You Can Do Overnight?
Good, but there is better out there. Apr 10, 2007
These projects seem to be minimal, which is good if that is what you are looking for. I would be embarrassed to use these as a "science project" for a grade, personally. The purpose of the projects seem VERY basic (example: "To demonstrate that matter takes up space."). Personally, I'd rather spend my money on a book that has more "meat".
Good book, good content, great help! Jan 15, 2007
We bought this book to use as an alternative to TV-filled weekends. So far, so good! The projects are well written and easy to follow. This is just one reason she is a very popular children's science author. The book is well written and contains interesting, age-appropriate topics for students to explore. We spent the first few days trying to narrow our choices to just a few to explore first!
