Overview of 365 More Simple Science Experiments with Everyday Materials


Illustrated by Frances Zweifel
  • This companion to the popular 365 Simple Science Experiments fills a whole new year with fun, easy and educational hands-on experiments. Kids will learn basic scientific concepts, covering everything from nature, physics, time, chemistry and space.
  • The fundamentals of science are brought to life in an informative and colorful text that children ages seven and up can easily follow by themselves. Simple, clear and safe instructions explain the experiments all of which use everyday materials found in most homes.
  • Projects range from mastering helicopter flight with a pencil and piece of cardboard to building bird-nests, preserving spider webs and constructing a "cigar box" guitar (to understand sound waves).
  • More than 700 lively illustrations give visual aids to help set up the experiments.

Synopsis of 365 More Simple Science Experiments with Everyday Materials

Make a foundation from a can and learn about water pressure. Float a glass in water and learn the principle of displacement (discovered by Greek mathematicians Archimedes). heat an egg in hot water and actually see evidence of the molecules escaping through the shell. Drop marbles into a glass of water and prove that two forms of matter cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Use a straw to demonstrate air pressure. Make a parachute to understand a law of physics. Amaze your friends by sticking pins in an inflated balloon without popping it, and then conduct an experiment to show them why 1 plus 1 does not equal 2.

In 365 more Simple Science Experiments, you'll know exactly what to do, what happens and why. So whether it's understanding gravity, becoming a kitchen alchemist, designing a rocket, or telling time by the sun, the moon, or the stars, you'll see that being a scientist doesn't just make the world a better place - it's also great fun. Following are just a few of the fascinating experiments you'll find inside:

- Launch your own astronauts

- Catching sound

- Musical nails

- Pendulum sand painting

- Maple snow sugar

- Milking a potato

- How to make vinegar

- Poached egg physics

- Crazy cave icicles

- The amazing humm-o-comb

- Find the center of gravity

- A gyroscope in your pocket

Children's Literature

This edition contains the same experiments from five previous titles such as Simple Physics Experiments with Everyday Materials (1993) and Simple Time Experiments with Everyday Materials (1995) helpfully combined and reorganized into new categories. Areas of discovery include heat, air, water, light, gravity, sound, food, clocks and time, ecosystems, flight, outer space, and rocketry. Each experiment illustrates some property-such as sound travels better through a tube or sugar burns while salt does not. Each activity is presented in four parts: "What to do," "What happens," "Why" and "What next." While teachers and students may conduct the experiment and see the results for themselves, the clean format enables learners to visualize properties and learn the "whys" and "wherefores" without actually leaving their chairs. Most experiments demand very little in the way of materials, usually requiring only common household items, while a few cooking experiments demand adult supervision. Most can be done by any elementary-age child. Glossary and index are included, and black line illustrations tinted pink or orange lighten the page or picture the set-up, but otherwise teach little.
