Keeping Pace With Changes In Science Education Science Experiments On File™ and More Science Experiments On File™ have become authoritative sources of quality hands-on science materials. With the changes in science education, these two important and award-winning resources have been revised and updated to keep up with new curriculum requirements and the demands of the national science standards. The result is Science Experiments On File™, Revised Edition. Practical And Innovative Experiments From Award-Winning Science Teachers The new edition features 200 challenging, inexpensive, and fun experiments (contained in two volumes) that middle and high school students can perform at home or in a school lab. Approximately 40 new experiments focus on weather and space, areas of increasing interest and importance to students and teachers. Each experiment has been reorganized into three sections:The Procedure shows what can be learned through the observation and analysis of immediate physical results.What's Going On immediately follows the procedure and describes the science behind the experiment.Connections explain how science impacts students' daily lives. A Fresh, New Look Science Experiments On File™ has been completely redesigned to make the experiments more appealing and accessible.
