Now you can discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about basic astronomy. In Astronomy for Every Kid youll learn about the constellations using a shoe box planetarium. Youll chart the movement of the stars with nothing but a string, a marker, and a nail. And youll use a toy magnet to simulate the Earths protective force field. Each of the 101 experiments is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation.

The projects presented in this book are suitable for ages 5 and up. They are such that you can keep them simple and fun or add complexity with the addition of research and explanation.
I have several of her books in my home library and will be adding more.
I love the set-up of the book: it is divided into the various divisions of Earth Science (astronomy, rocks and minerals, oceans, etc) and has a TON of experiments in each section. They are all easy to do; most use materials from around the house. The few that don't use materials that are easy to find at any store. Each experiment is supplemented by a simple, yet very clear illustration, easy-to-follow steps, and an explanation of why the experiment works the way it does.
If you teach middle school, VanCleave's books are great to have!!
