This series offers curriculum-enhancing ideas for practicing scientific inquiry and critical thinking skills. Each of these “Super Cool Science Experiments” titles uses hands-on experiments and activities to demonstrate a wide range of topics, encouraging readers to ask and answer questions about how things work. Each title begins with an explanation of the scientific method, then offers detailed, step-by-step instructions students can use to conduct experiments that use familiar, real-world examples. Instructions are accompanied by colorful diagrams, illustrations, and photos so that older students could carry out many of the experiments on their own. This series compiles a substantial number of practical classroom activities into a collection that is user-friendly and encourages creativity and critical thinking.
