Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wanted to eat lunch in space? Or wished you could launch a rocket? Or tried to figure out where rust comes from? You'll find a lot of answers when you perform the simple, fun experiments in this book! With the McGraw-Hill Big Book of Science Activities, you'll be able to show the grownups in your life and your friends a thing or two about how the galaxy, the world, and nearly everything in it works! You'll learn real laws of chemistry and physics, principles of animal and plant biology, geology and geography, meteorology (the study of weather), and astronomy! A collection of the best activities from the popular "Science for Kids" series. Each experiment takes less than half an hour. Uses only easy-to-find materials like bottle caps and liquid detergent. Offers step-by-step instructions and simple explanations that illustrate the science behind the projects. Includes a special section on science fair projects!

Synopsis:

Here's the best of the best - more than 250 experiments culled from McGraw-Hill's long-running "Science for Kids" series, in an enlarged format complete with a special science fair section! Astronomy, plant and animal biology, geology, chemistry, weather, physics, geography...it's all here in one thorough accessible book, with step-by-step instructions that make each activity virtually foolproof. All experiments can be completed in under a half hour each, using readily-available materials like bottle caps and liquid detergent. This jam-packed, fully illustrated, compendium is a particular "best buy" for families with lots of interest in science but without lots of time.

Synopsis:

From making an earthworm farm to launching a plastic bottle rocket, here's hours of fun for curious kids ages 8 to 12. Plus, kids learn a lot of science with the 250 simple-to-perform activities in this book. In half an hour or less, using only readily available materials like bottle caps and liquid detergent , kids can try experiments that demonstrate real laws of chemistry and physics, principles of animal and plant biology, geology, meteorology (the study of weather), and astronomy. This well-illustrated, best of the best collection from McGraw-Hill's popular "Science for Kids" series also gives kids help putting together a science fair project.
