Nature Science Experiments: What's Hopping in a Dust Bunny?
Fun, easy-to-use, and accessible, this cool collection of science activities will have kids ages 9-12 eagerly carrying out experiments with common, everyday objects from the home and backyard. The captivating ideas range from DNA collection (getting samples from real cells in your mouth) to investigating carnivorous plants (“Trigger This: Explore the Properties of the Venus Flytrap’s Trigger Hairs”). Every topic is presented in appealing clear, reading-level-appropriate language with complementary experiments, sidebars, illustrations, photography, and extension activities.
