Science Is...: A Source Book of Fascinating Facts, Projects and Activitiesby Susan V. Bosak
Synopses & Reviews
This guide for teachers is the answer to all questions children ask and all the wonders they want to investigate — from the marvel of a raindrop on a leaf, to the power of a volcano, to the mysteries of the universe.
This award-winning bestseller is the biggest and best collection of science activities for children 6 to 14 years old. There are projects, experiments, games, puzzles, and stories. They cover all areas of science, including matter and energy, the human body, the environment, rocks, plants, animals, insects, weather, stars and planets, and technology.
Activities range in length from the popular 'Quickies' to projects that can be done over several days or weeks. They've all been tested and use simple materials. Easy-to-follow explanations, engaging illustrations, and fun facts (did you know that a cockroach can live for nine days without its head?). Many thousands of copies of Science Is... have been used by student teachers to get started in science class. Make this a book you'll turn to again and again.
An innovative book ... Youngsters will be intrigued by the exciting activities crammed into this book. (Today's Parent)
An excellent reference source for parents and teachers (School Library Journal)
A powerful and practical resource... Will enrich any school science curriculum. Highly recommended (Appraisal, School of Education, Boston University)

A classic resource for teachers is back in print. This guide for teachers is the answer to all questions children ask and all the wonders they want to investigate - from a raindrop on a leaf, to volcanos, to the mysteries of the universe.
