School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-VanCleave proves once again that science can be fun. These experiments in astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics "-take science out of the laboratory and put it into your daily life." Each activity includes a purpose, a list of materials, a step-by-step procedure, results, and an explanation. Experiments address such topics as the Moon's "changing" size, how environment affects body temperature, and why ice pops are softer than ice. An excellent resource.-Carol Wichman, Northridge Local Schools, Dayton, OH (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
