Why is the sky blue? How do see-saws work? What's ooblech? This series provides fun experiments and explanations that answer all sorts of questions and tie into the K-4 science curriculum. The books will surprise your students with the realization that science is not just in the classroom -- it's in the kitchen, in their food, in the gym, in the playground, in the car -- it's even right in their own backyard!

Kids know they're not supposed to play with their food, but nobody said anything about not experimenting! With these engaging experiments, your students will learn why soda has bubbles, where salt comes from, and what our bones would be like without calcium.
