I really enjoyed this book and all the experiments it had. I would like to try to have a day in my own classroom where all the students would try some experiments on their own. I think this book is perfect for that kind of situation. They are easy, simple, and most can all be done in a classroom. I really think my students would enjoy this book and what it contains.
A fantastic book and a good teaching resource. Some brilliant activities to use as part of science lessons in school including: Air rockets; Air support, Bottle Balloon; Gusty Going; Egg Shape; Sun burst; Water spin; Family Genes; Light beams; Pulling pulleys; Liquid attraction; Wind Wheel; and Create Lightning.
