With Earth Science for Every Kid, answering questions like, How are the mountains formed? What makes the air we breathe? What causes the ocean waves? will be much easier with 101 fun, safe, low-cost experiments and activities that can be preformed at home or in the classroom. Earth Science for Every Kid is an elementary science experiment book, designed to teach that Science is fun! Earth Science is more than a list of facts about rocks, atomosphere, oceans, earthquakes, and flowing rivers. It is a study of how your life is affected by the things on and around the earth.
The 101 earth science experiments are designed for children ages 8 through 12. Young children will be able to successfully complete the experiemnts with adult supervision. Older children can easily follow the step-by-step instructions and complete the experiments with little or no adult help. Special warnings are given when adult assistance might be required. Each experiment has a purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, illustrations, expected results, and a scientific explanation in understandable terms.
