Looks like fun, but will wait until kiddo can participate more in the measuring and such like. Maybe next summer.
Charlene McCormack
A fun book full of science experiments that use food to prove their points and you can eat what you make. The instructions are simple and warn you not to eat certain things like iodine tested food.
This book is really fun, it has all these different recipes for science experiments. If you have a science thing for school, you should use this(you can eat it afterward...)
Gabe Gruenstein
This is not your ordinary science book, or an ordinary cook book, it is a science cook book. this book has many diffrerent experiments that you can do.
