Timberdoodle's review
 
Even Kids Who Hate Science will Love Hands-On Science Mysteries
You may know a child that finds science boring, but have you ever discovered a child that is ho-hum about mysteries? It is human nature to want to answer the whys of life but where curriculums often fall short is neglecting to show how science answers valid questions. If they could only do that, then children would be enthralled. Hands-On Science Mysteries does just that.

Start Solving Famous Mysteries
Super easy to just pick up and use, Hands-On Science Mysteries will have your children investigating well-known mysteries such as Yellow Fever and the Hindenburg, as well as the more obscure but no less intriguing Galloping Gertie and the C.S.S. Hunley. Published by a secular company, you may not share their views on a couple of investigations. However, one of the cases studied looks into the claim that Noah's Ark could not have been sea-worthy. (Spoiler alert the authors show otherwise!)

Use the Basic Scientific Principles
Hands-On Science Mysteries is rooted in scientific inquiry and all labs are designed to encourage your children to observe, take notes, make diagrams, interpret data, and arrive at solutions. Don't be surprised to find that the child that typically hates science experiments finds this rooting of science to real-world situations mesmerizing.

Covers a Broad Range of Scientific Concepts
Some of the science concepts covered in Hands-On Science Mysteries are static electricity, simple machines, density, optics, combustion, states of matter, and heat. All topics have been designed to support the National Science Standards. Common everyday items used for the labs makes Hands-On Science Mysteries remarkably accessible for any home. Printed in a lay-flat format for easy photocopying, Hands-On Science Mysteries is written for grades 3- 6. However, while children as young as five may not be able to fill in the worksheets, they will be able to fully understand the concepts and will definitely want to be included.
