We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
There is a one page of introduction explaining where water is, why we use it, then it’s straight into the experiments. All the usual (and entertaining) suspects are here - white flower in coloured water, making iceblocks, and crystals, refraction, surface tension, etc. However what I really like about this book is the level - these are experiments for junior primary children, with very clear instructions and illustrations, and at the end of each experiment, there’s a very clear simple explanation about what happened.
The other three books in this great One Stop Science series from Franklin Watts are: experiments with a lemon, a ruler, and a torch.
