As summer arrives and McAfee families are preparing for visits from younger family members, (grandchildren, nieces/nephews, etc.) do know about a most wonderful science experiment book (175 experiments) for young and old alike to share and enjoy together.This little paperback book will become priceless in building warm family memories. The book is written by author, Brenda Walpole, who writes in the various areas re science for children.
This particular book was published in 1988, but basic science laws still remain the same...today!And that is what this book is about... basic scientific laws.The title of the book: <175 Science Experiments to Amuse and Amaze Your Friends.>ISBN: 0-394-89991-1.Price: Used copies of the book will range from one cent upwards... plus $3.99 shipping! New copies are in the three dollar range plus shipping!How inexpensive it that for a summer of daily fun times for the children and for you? There will be such warm memories from this book ...and good photo opportunities, too!
One strategy in working with young children (works with the older children, also) is to let them actually select x number of experiments which they would like to do...such as one per day for a five day week.Show them how to mark the selected experiment pages with adhensive color coding labels (Avery brand...or which ever...from Walmart, The Dollar Tree, or any office supply store.) Again, each week could be a particular color chosen by the child and five pages marked in one color for the week. This would teach the skill of organizing and color coding without the child even realizing it.Oh, for "those teachable moments along the way...."
Do know that there are quite a number of books authored by Brenda Walpole, so be sure to review many other titles of books which may be of interest to your family! One title of interest to me is about paper airplanes but I have not, yet, found the book to be in stock...at any book site!(Do let me know if you find it! firstname.lastname@example.org)For sure, what McAfee child has not or will not build a paper airplane at some point in his life?
