As you're admiring the "crown" created by a water drop splashing into a pool, or how many water droplets can fit on the head of a pin (the smallest droplet on the pin contains more than three trillion water molecules), you'll learn about evaporation, condensation, snowflakes, how clouds form, and more amazing water tricks. Wick's other artfully composed photographs include a "wild wave" caused by a brown egg dropped in a water glass, soap bubbles with a "shimmering liquid skin," a snowflake at 60 times its actual size, and dew on a spider web. Like many old-fashioned science books, A Drop of Water ends with a list of simple experiments may lure the young reader into the world of scientific investigation. Unlike many old science books, this one also stands on its own as a beautiful, notable collection of photographs.
Astonishing photos of water experiments. Great for studying water and scientific method. Many ideas for quick and easy water experiments in the classroom.Published 4 months ago by LP Salas
The photography is outstanding. It is very informational. My daycare children are in grades 1&2 and they just loved it. He really captured real life. My best is the snowflakes.Published 6 months ago by Denise L. Barker
My son and I love this book. It has been given a gifts because we like it so much. I used it as a science unit with him for 2nd grade, not that he knew that. Read morePublished 7 months ago by homeschool mom kris
Would have given it 1 star but the pictures are very nice. But it's just not something that interested my kids or me. It is definitely written at at least a 5th/6th grade level.Published 9 months ago by M. J. Miller
