en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 18 Mar 2008
Fun Science Projects that Introduce Science Process Skills
There′s plenty for you to choose from in this treasure chest of educational and fun science activities, experiments, and worksheets for Pre–K through 2nd grade. Written by well–known children′s science writer Janice VanCleave, this book offers teachers a much–needed resource for preparing young students with a solid grounding in science inquiry as recommended by the national science education standards.
The book′s 75 lessons and reproducible activities touch on all areas of science and provide the key to a world of science magic and mystery. While kids will have fun doing the activities and learning to love science, they are also being encouraged to develop other skills, including reading, writing, math, and art.
The book is designed to help young students catch the "science bug" and find the answers for themselves to these and other questions:
  • Why do cats have whiskers?
  • How does a caterpillar change into a butterfly?
  • Why do elephants have such large ears?
  • How does a grasshopper grow?
  • Why is the skin on my elbows so wrinkled?
  • Why does food taste different when I have a cold?
  • How can we make perfume from flower petals?
  • Why does my shadow change during the day?
In addition, budding young scientist investigators will be learning these fundamental science process skills: observing, communicating, making and using definitions, measuring and estimating, grouping, and investigating. The book′s activities can be done using easy–to–find materials in the classroom or at home just for fun!
