More Than 100 Kid-friendly Experiments
Weary of hearing the statistics of how far behind children in the US are in science knowledge? National Geographic Elements of Science will surely cultivate a better understanding of science through more than 100 fun and informative kid-friendly experiments.

    Neat!! May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Nom  
    I was glad to find the instruction book that comes with the National Geographic Elements of Science by Thames and Kosmos to be well organized, colorful, and interesting. I think this is a handy product to have on hand for when we need a break from routine (example: during a winter coldspell in the midwest). Also a bonus is that my husband finds it intersting to do with the children!
