Format: Paperback
Like all of Mary Ann Kohl's books, this one is easily readable, with 1 activity listed per page, including pictures of the activity. It provides a reminder that science doesn't only happen at the science table! I often make my student interns choose an activity from this book (or MathArts)as the activities are open ended, process-oriented, and explained step by step. A great resource.

Format: Paperback
What a wonderful and unique approach to science education! This book is jammed full of one-page "art experiments." The key is to use art projects to learn some science principles. Among many of the ideas to learn are dissolving, symmetry, reflecting light, gravity and friction. The only drawback is that the book could benefit from an introduction on the inquiry-based approach to learning...From The Science Spiders(TM) Newsletter.

I had never really thought how beautiful and mysterious and colorful and delightful science could be. This book inspires me, a person who has never really liked science all that much. Now I do! And I will pass that on to my kids when we do the Chromatography Art Experiment and separate colors on absorbant paper. Can't wait!

This book contains over 100 craft-oriented projects that can be used to teach science. The crafts are oriented around science themes including diffusion, surface tension, gravity, and friction. Some of the things that make me really like the book are:
- A suggested age level is listed for each project
- The authors list all the necessary materials and give clear steps for doing the project
- They give variations to each project
- They give an explanation of what is being learned in the project
- The art techniques used are identified at the top of the page whether or not the child will need help
- The level of preparation necessary for each project is given

This is a very well thought out book and the projects are interesting. I love it.

This book is simply great. I bought several of Jean Potter's other books so when I found her name on line, I decided to buy this one. It is everything I thougt it would be and MORE! I love art, but never thought the two mixed. This is a book for every kid, teacher and parent!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book offers many science/art projects, but without real science or art depth. These projects would be good for an introduction to science/art, but you would need to do your homework to really make the lessons meaningful.

This is a wonderful and creative book. It has excellent Science explanations and offers variations for the projects. We'll be using every lesson out of it for our homeschooling.
