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)

About the Author:

Best-selling author and educator Susan V. Bosak, M.A., has worked with teachers, youth leaders, parents, and children, and researched more than 1,000 science books, to create one super science activity book that captures the interest of both young and old.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- An encyclopedic collection of demonstrations, puzzles, facts, and charts. There are even several short science-related plays. Many of the experiments are old standards, but there are some new gems such as trying to bat half a ball or imitating animal stances as if they were yoga positions. All of the demonstrations use common materials and include appropriate safety warnings. Activities are organized in a unique manner--by the amount of time and effort involved (quick, make time, and sequential experiments), and then further subdivided by subject area. A thorough listing of books, magazines, and videotapes is also included. As a result, this title is an excellent reference source for teachers and parents. Moreover, Bosak has done a wonderful job of connecting science to other topics, such as including a relevant Sioux fable in the environment section or viewing rubbings of tree barks and leaves as art. The only problem is with the design of the book, which is a mishmash of text-laden pages, black-ink illustrations (often featuring cutesy animals), and pages splattered with different styles of boxes and type fonts. The result is hard on the eyes. --Alan Newman, American Chemical Society, Washington, DC
