Reviewed with Robert Gardner's Super-Sized Science Projects with Volume.
Gr. 2-5. Books in the Sensational Science Experiments series are devoted to relatively simple projects. The page design seems busy, but the books are considerably brighter and more attractive than most books of experiments. Each presentation comprises a list of equipment, one or more illustrations (pictures, charts, graphs), and step-by-step directions. The books' introductions provide useful information on topics such as the history and types of thermometers, advice for entering science fairs, and safety tips. Really Hot includes such experiments as observing diffusion in hot and cold water and measuring the dew point. Super-Sized explores topics ranging from determining the volume of a quart and a liter to the amount of air in a container of sand. Gardner's clear, informal explanations are echoed in LaBaff's colorful illustrations. Students, teachers, and home-schooling parents will find these books to be good sources for both ideas and explanations. Each book closes with a glossary and lists of recommended books and Web sites.
