Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–8—These books provide a variety of "workshops" that encourage readers to experiment, observe, and survey two popular topics. The projects clearly define the time required, type of science, concepts, and amount of adult involvement needed. A question to consider; a plan to follow, including detailed steps; a list of required materials; and basic science facts that guide the workshop are also included. The last chapters discuss a variety of ways to present the projects. Series such as Robert Gardner's "Ace Your Science Project" and "Score! Sports Science Projects" (both Enslow, 2009) include more background information on the topic, but these books give additional opportunities for extending the basic projects along with detailed suggestions for presenting them. The cartoon illustrations will appeal to middle-grade scientists. Welcome additions to science-fair collections.—Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA

Format: Library Binding
We have done a few of these experiments just for household fun. The ideas in the book are explained well, with colors behind the text and a good list of supplies. We have become much more aware of the bugs in our environment. Living in the desert gives us a near-constant supply of crickets in our garage. Crickets are good. All our native ants are vicious biters, and I have actually given some consideration to ordering ants... but then we find something else to do with the crickets. We also have plenty of butterflies and spiders.

These ideas are very interesting. This book can be a springboard to other great science ideas.

Format: Paperback
Just like Science Fair Winners: Crime Scene Science, this book is filled with idea after idea for your science fair project. Study the world of creepy crawlies and build your project around a bug or phobia. Each chapter focuses on a workshop/project with easy to follow instructions, suggestions and questions to prompt experimentation and discovery. I give this five (Amazon) stars because it's an invaluable resource for home and school.
