Each activity contains a list of supplies, thorough directions, a simple explanation of the science behind what you see, and several suggestions for how to make the experiment broader and deeper.
At the end of each science activity you will find three “Variations to Try.” These are intended to build on the scientific concepts taught in each activity and to get the kids thinking more deeply about what they see. It’s like getting 24 bonus dry ice science experiments!
Each cool dry ice experiment also comes with a no-prep worksheet to increase attention and understanding. All eight worksheets can be bundled together to create a science journal kids can keep!
