This is my favorite kid science book. We use it every week.
This solid hardback Science Encyclopedia contains nearly 450 pages of amazing information and 1,000 internet links for further enrichment and discovery.
It is the ultimate textbook for kids of all ages. It is a must-have for homeschoolers, an ideal resource for helping children with science projects, and an aid for helping your child discover more in-depth information on their favorite science topic.
You will find the whole field of science from physics, chemistry, biology, information technology, Earth sciences and astronomy to new fields such a genetic engineering, nanotechnology, telecommunications and the preservation of planet Earth.
The First Encyclopedia of Science book for kids contains simple and concise explanations to questions young children have such as:
- “What happens to the food you eat?”
- “What is the earth made of?”
- “How are rainbows formed?”
Each subject includes several websites that young scientists can visit to watch animations, play science games, and download pictures. It contains 64 pages that offer a broad overview of the science subjects youngsters (ages 8 and up) will find most interesting.
The First Illustrated Science Dictionary is ideal for very young children (4-6 years old) to get their first taste of what science is all about.
It contains clear and concise definitions of hundreds of terms, bright illustrations, and links to recommended websites offering science puzzles, games, and experiments.
It contains information about living things, materials, forces, light, sound and electricity, space, and scientific investigations.
This is the book that has inspired activities such as the ever-popular Rainbow Paper and the spooky Witches’ Brew. If you like those activities, you are going to LOVE the other treasures you find in 100 Science Experiments.
Like the other experiment books, all of the activities in this book are relatively easy and require materials that most people already have lying around the house.
The experiments in this book may be for a slightly older audience (age 8 or 9), though most, if not all, of the experiments can be done with younger kids with the help of an adult. My six-year-old, and even my three-year-old, love every activity we have done from this book so far.
Each activity requires materials that most families have already at home with easy-to-follow directions that many children can do on their own. Each activity also contains a little blurb about what is going on scientifically (the why’s and how’s behind the cool little project).
The recommended age for this science book is 6 years and up, but with a parent’s help a child as young as 2 or 3 can really enjoy and participate in the activities.
Science Activities, Volume One, is 72 pages jam-packed with tons of, well, science activities. Volume One contains activities that investigate the properties of water, light, mirrors, and magnets.
The recommended age is 6 years and up, but even tiny kids will love watching the ‘magic’ of many of these science experiments with the help of an adult.
