It was a fun way to encorporate science into learning!
Amy W.
I could probably use 30-40% of this book for high school biology class with a few minor adaptations here and there.

The kids love the experiments and they are so easy to follow.

I've had fun with this book as a teacher in my own classroom, as a parent and grandparent in my own kitchen, and best of all as a substitute teacher using it for filler in high school chemistry classes and sometimes wowing advanced chemistry students with how much I know for "just being a mommy." My kids have more vivd memories of this book than they do of video games.

What a great way to teach science. Children learn best when they can relate to what they are learning and they can relate to most food. Tell them, they forget; show them they remember; but once they've made it and eaten it they will understand(paraphrase of a chinese proverb). I consider this a significant book in our collection for teachers and future teachers.

We discovered the original 1974 version of this book in our school library. After a quick perusal, we realized it was a fantastically fun way to teach kids science. The kids love the experiments and they are so easy to follow. Now, we use it everyday in our lesson planning in order to teach the scientific method. What a great way to use all five senses to make learning fun and real-world applicable!

My 10 year old daughter and I have been working through this book during the summer. She has really enjoyed the experiments. Some of the information is a review from what she learned last year in school and some of it is new. Many of the experiments suggested have lead us to new experiments of our own.

I could probably use 30-40% of this book for high school biology class with a few minor adaptations here and there. I can see an elementary teacher getting about the same use out of this book. It's fun to read and contains great ideas. For the price, it is definitely worth it!

I have done three of these experiments with my kids so far, and we love this book. The experiments are simple, and most things we already have, the rest I can easily get. My son did find a few facts in the book that were wrong, but that may be because the copyright was 1994, and it may be behind by now. To me, that just gives us opportunity to look it up and find how far we've come in 14 years. I am sure we will get a lot out of this book: knowlege, fun, memories, and snacks!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 9 yr old grandson and find it is also interesting to his mother and myself in the way it illustrates the chemistry & science involved in ordinary things done in the kitchen. It answers questions like why does a cut apple turn brown, why tea may turn some punch cloudy and how microwave popcorn shares technology used in the stealth bomber.

This book helps to show how chemistry & science affects everything we do and answers that always present question, "Why do I need to learn this (chemistry, science, ect.)?

This book is great for introducing various science concepts to children, and has many recipes that can be used and then eaten! Includes muffins, jell-o, rock candy, and more.
