An Excellent Resource for Elementary-School Science Teachers May 21 2012
By Jan Peczkis - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This single-volume resource is packed with well-illustrated, lucidly-presented information. It also has a glossary of scientific terms.

Each foldout page examines a specific topic. Every one of these can be used to launch a scientific lesson. The topics include basics such as electricity, magnetism, Newton's Three Laws, simple machines, bicycles, trains, the workings of the internal combustion engine, etc. A timeline of technological developments, going back to early human civilization, is included.

This book also includes more esoteric topics such as the workings of fireworks, ears and sound, wavelengths of light, power plants, flotation of boats and ships, manned space flight, workings of lenses and light bulbs, the Internet, bar codes, and possible future developments such as the hydrogen-driven bus.

6 year old loves this book Sept. 1 2011
By G. Bowerbank - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I gave this to may son for this birthday- he loves science, and inventing, etc. He loves this book, and even his younger brothers enjoy it because of the great pictures in it. Some of the explanations go over his head, but most are explained so that he can understand how they work, it is great book, I think he will love it even more when he is a bit older.

Great book Jan. 10 2011
By Bob - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Books were purchased for 9 and 10 year olds. They were very excited with them.
I think the information was just the right amount for their age, not too much
but still enough detail to give them an understanding. Photos were great.

Perfect! Feb. 1 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my husband who has been diagnosed with early Alzheimer's. He saw the copy our grandchildren had gotten for Christmas and wanted a copy for himself. It is written simply enough for him to grasp.

Love this book! I had originally borrowed it from my public library, but loved it so much and thought my students would also. I had to get one for my classroom resource library.
