With an amazing experiment for each week, Janice VanCleave’s Science Around the Year introduces you to dozens of wondrous topics in astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics.
The key word is discover. Yes, Science Around the Year provides investigations so that you discover why leaves turn colors and fall off trees in autumn, why September is a good time to look for monarch butterflies, how salt melts ice, what pine-cones can tell you about the weather, and much, much more. As with all of Janice VanCleave’s books, each activity is fun and includes simple step-by-step instructions, as well as clear explanations of the concepts you’re seeing in action. Janice VanCleave’s Science Around the Year promises hours and hours of fascinating, hands-on, safe, low-cost science fun-at home or in the classroom.
