9780789469717: Backyard Science

What do earthworms do for a living? How can you change the color of flowers? Can you roar without opening your mouth? Why can some insects walk on water? Over 50 experiments show you that science is growing like crazy all around us. Science has come out of the laboratory and into the real world. Kids can become scientists in their own backyards using simple garden tools and equipment to carry out homegrown experiments.

About the Author:

Chris Maynard has written about 55 children's books. He won the Rhone-Poulenc Science Junior Book of the Year in 1996 (The World of Weather) and his Informania Sharks was runner up for the TES Senior Information Book Award in 1998. Recently, he has discovered the joys of writing websites too.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-These titles are characterized by a spacious format; color photographs of attractive, enthusiastic children; and bright, clearly labeled procedures for basic experiments. Backyard Science treats insects and birds, soil science, water purification, sun and shadows, and more. Kitchen Science includes observations of mold growth, creating emulsions and colloids, bubble experiments, and fizzy projects using baking soda and vinegar. Safety warnings are indicated in triangular icons. Colored boxes explain exactly what is happening scientifically. The superior design and clever texts, which use humor, instruction, and questioning to convey information, make these volumes new and fresh.
