The more engaged children are during the learning process, the greater their understanding and retention of the material. The experiments, activities, and overall approach in this book encourage a kind of 'full body learning' that brings all five senses into play, an approach that elevates kids' involvement to the highest level. The positive results are evident immediately - in the keen interest, excitement, even joy on the part of young learners as they observe, act, and inquire. There are dozens of fun, simple experiments designed to work with easy-to-find materials. The book uses research-based methods, provides step-by-step directions, and includes detailed explanations of the science involved, making it incredibly easy for an educator to intersperse science and math throughout the day. Above all, this hands-on approach promotes critical thinking and problem-solving in young students, laying a strong foundation for ongoing success in school and life.
