Scientist of the Day
A Classroom or Home Science Program
for Students Ages 6-12
by Linda Pierce Picciotto
Want to do some cool science experiments?
This book has easy explanations with illustrations, and tells you everything
you need to have on hand for each of 46 different projects that you can demonstrate
to your family or show at a homeschool group science fair. It even tells you
when to pause in your presentation, and what questions to ask your audience,
to get everyone involved in predicting and hypothesizing (now that's
a big, scientific word!).
These projects will get you thinking, teach you some cool scientific facts,
and best of all, they're lots of fun!
The book includes forms to photocopy for record keeping, and for you to use
when you draw pictures of what you did and label them with explanations.
Please send your parents to see www.scientistoftheday.com
for more information, a look inside the book, and ordering instructions (it's
only $12.95). You can go there too, to see some of the experiments for free!
