Great fun! Activities require very easily accessible materials that educate and entertain. We took this book to a family reunion and had everyone from age 8 to 88 trying to do the experiments the scientific experts claim are Impossible. Now, every time my grandchildren (ages 6 and 10)visit, this is the first book they drag off the shelf. This is a timeless winner!

Bet You Can't is a wonderful tool for teachers and students. Science is presented as fun challenges. It can be used in the classroom setting in many ways--as independent centers, and as science process presentations. Students are amazed at the activities. This book helps students understand science in a fun.

A favorite childhood book in my home, I had to purchase this for my kids. They love it! I find that I cannot flip through this book without trying some of them, in fact....that is how the book starts "bet you can't get to the end of this book without trying at least one of these challenges."

Any and all of these could be great starts to a science project.

I loved this book when I was younger and now my nieces are loving it too. Fun for kids in 3rd grade and up and a must for any child (or fun-loving adult) who loves science. I will note that some experiments involve flames so adult help is best here if your child is younger side of the age category. I use my old copy as a fun thing for my high school students to participate in and they beg to read the book or "try something from that book" all year long. Everything can pretty much be done with household supplies and nominal set-up time. Also, the book explains WHY you 'can't' do it using science after every event. Perfect for getting kids talking and excited-- and learning-- about science.

Last I heard this book is out of print so I had to buy a used copy. However it is well worth the time to hunt it down. Great book!

A different activity on each page. Easy to find material and great to use as homework assignments for science class. The students love these-and this version has more interesting activities than the Bet You Can-which is also very good.

My kid's had this book when they were growing up and loved it! So, I just bought it for my grandkids, too. My grandson loves it already. My daughter was so excited that I was still able to find this book!
