Containing activities that require minimum adult supervision, this book aims to encourage children to develop an understanding of simple scientific concepts by carrying out their own practical investigations, making toys and playing magic tricks and games. All the experiments can be carried out in the home with safe, inexpensive materials which are readily available internationally. The four main science topics covered are water, air movement and light, and each section is followed by a quiz.

lor photos. "Facts, experiments, tricks based on scientific principles, and things to make comprise the text of this book. The material is divided into four sections--water, air, movement, and light. The language used is clear, concise, and interesting. Every experiment, trick, and object to make is not only explained clearly but illustrated as well, making the book especially useful for the visual learner. There is so much here to intrigue readers! This will surely bring young readers into the interesting world of science."--(starred) Science Books & Films.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6 This collection of science facts and activities (the word experiments in the title is somewhat misleading) focuses on four areas: water, air, movement, and light. Each section includes suggestions for things to make, things to observe, and tricks that can be performed, based on scientific concepts. The activities vary widely in difficulty and complexity. Few of the activities are true science experiments; however, each is well illustrated with clear and colorful illustrations and drawings. The directions are concise and easy to follow, and those activities that require adult assistance are clearly marked. The glossary and index are useful but not comprehensive, and the quizzes at the end of each section serve no useful purpose. On the whole, though, this is an effective and wide-ranging selection of scientific activities. Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Lib . , Ill.
