Why do planets spin? How hot is the sun? What keeps the Moon in orbit around the Earth? What are Saturn’s rings made of? What’s a black hole in space?
Now you can discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about basic astronomy. In Astronomy for Every Kid you’ll learn about the constellations using a shoe box planetarium. You’ll chart the movement of the stars with nothing but a string, and marker, and a nail. And you’ll use a toy magnet to simulate the Earth’s protective force field.
Each of the 101 experiments is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation. Every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home.
