200 Gooey, Slippery, Slimy, Weird and Fun Experiments

This book by Janice Van Cleave addresses questions raised by students with regard to the environment for 8-12 year olds. How do honeybees find their way home? Why is Venus so hot? How can you measure the speed of the wind? What makes a sound loud or soft?

Janice has created fun, safe, low-cost experiments for the home or classroom. Use a Styrofoam ball, a pencil, and a lamp to learn why the Moon appears and disappears. With just a jar and some ice cubes, demonstrate how rain is formed. Each experiment includes an illustration and easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
