Gr 3-9--Attractive, colorful, and full of photos, these hi/lo titles will appeal to a wide range of kids. While they are written on a third to fourth grade reading level, the photos show a cast of multicultural middle graders, so children in the older end of the grade range won't be shy about picking them up. Each project can be completed with simple household items, and most include six or fewer easy steps. The brief "Why it works" box at the end of each activity explains the science. Anyone looking for a straightforward, fun, and easy science experiment will want these titles close by.[Page 113]. (c) Copyright 2010.
