I'm usually meh on generic experiment books. Not this time. This book includes all the "good" experiments that actually work from almost all the actual science curriculum we've tried over the years. Perfect for Summer use or you could build your own science class using this as a spine.
Most of the activities take no longer than 30 minutes and you don't need a full classroom of kids to do them. We liked the instant slushie, human spirograph, and hydrophobic clothes the best. All the activities showed what happened when Nat Geo tried it and if it didn't work how many times they tried to make it work. I like the honesty there, cause experiments don't always work according to the book.
Please note that I received a free advance ARC of this book from Media Masters and Nat Geo without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
