Here are great ideas for learning life science fundamentals at home or in the classroom! More than two dozen fun-to-do experiments both test and introduce kids to the five senses, as well as to botany, food chemistry, crime science, natural cycles, and human psychology. Young people learn to test their sense of depth perception, cultivate herbs, record and analyze fingerprints, assemble a home-made but accurate scale to balance weights, make a mini compost bin, prepare pickles and yogurt, and conduct many other science-based activities. The author presents ideas and instructions for science fair projects, including original experiments on enzyme action, decomposition, memory, and more. Attractive, easy-to-follow diagrams illustrate each step. Younger children will need adult supervision when carrying out many of these experiments. (Ages 11-15)
