A while back I discovered Usborne books and I absolutely fell in love with them. We spend a great deal of time reading story books with Babe but 100 Science Experiments is the first practical education book that we’re exploring with her.
At 18 months she is still too young for the majority of the experiments but there are a few that I think she will enjoy. However, if you have kids of different ages in your household, I’m certain you will appreciate this book as it does have a few experiments suitable for each age level. The publisher recommends this book for ages nine and up but preschoolers will enjoy learning about how the eye works as they make flip books while elementary students will enjoy building structures with spaghetti and marshmallows.
Each experiment has clear instructions and can be performed in about 30 minutes. There’s no shortage of pictures either which makes it a great option for your visual learner. This book also features Usborne Quicklinks – regularly updated additional experiments you can find online.
All in all, this seems like a great book that we will be able to explore for years to come. Check back next week when try our first experiment: Foaming Monster!
Last week was my first post as a co-host of the Geeky Educational Link Up. I’m so excited to be a part of this link up. Each week I’ll be publishing an educational post with a science and/or geeky twist. At the bottom of these posts you’ll find links to other interesting and fun educational posts. I hope you enjoy the ride!
My three favorite posts from last week’s link up were:
I co-host the Geeky Educational Link Up along with some great writers. You can find out a bit more about each co-host by reading our bios over at More Than A Coupon Queen, the host site. Take a look at their blogs each week. Some of these blogs also post some great geek projects and Science projects!
