About the Author:

JIM WIESE is a science teacher and an educational coordinator for nonprofit organizations. He is the author of the popular science activity books Roller Coaster Science, Rocket Science, Detective Science, Spy Science, Cosmic Science, and Magic Science (all from Wiley).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-More than 40 experiments and investigations help readers explore the body systems. Each activity includes a list of the required supplies (all readily available), a step-by-step procedure, and a scientific explanation of the results. The activities range from simple (how to test the sense of smell) to more complex (calculating the amount of horsepower used to walk and then run up stairs). Many projects teach basic scientific concepts. Suggestions for "More Fun Stuff to Do" encourage children to broaden and/or refine their observations. Additional information is provided in sidebars. Safety instructions and precautions are included. Although some of the experiments can be found in other sources such as Janice VanCleave's The Human Body for Every Kid (Wiley, 1995), Wiese's clear and lively presentation will aid students seeking project ideas and intrigue budding scientists.
