Learn physics, chemistry, and biology in your own backyard! In Outdoor Science Lab for Kids, scientist and mom Liz Heinecke has created 52 family-friendly labs designed to get you and yours outside in every season. From playground physics to backyard bugs, this book makes it fun and easy to dig into the natural sciences and learn more about the world around you. Have fun learning about: the laws of physics by constructing and using a marshmallow catapult. centripetal forces by swinging a sock filled with gelatin snack and marbles. earthworms by using ground mustard seed dissolved in water to make them wriggle to the surface. germination by sprouting a sapling from a pinecone or tree seed. surface tension and capillary action by growing baking soda stalagmites and stalactites. Many of the simple and inexpensive experiments are safe enough for toddlers, yet exciting enough for older kids, so families can discover the joy of science and STEM education together. Outdoor Science Lab for Kids was a 2017 Finalist for the AAAS/Subaru Prize for excellence in science books. The popular Lab for Kids series features a growing list of books that share hands-on activities and projects on a wide host of topics, including art, astronomy, clay, geology, math, and even how to create your own circus—all authored by established experts in their fields. Each lab contains a complete materials list, clear step-by-step photographs of the process, as well as finished samples. The labs can be used as singular projects or as part of a yearlong curriculum of experiential learning. The activities are open-ended, designed to be explored over and over, often with different results. Geared toward being taught or guided by adults, they are enriching for a range of ages and skill levels. Gain firsthand knowledge on your favorite topic with Lab for Kids.

Explore the wonders of the universe through hands-on fun! In Astronomy Lab for Kids, science educator Michelle Nichols has compiled 52 labs and activities that use everyday materials from around the house to encourage kids, their friends, and their families to look up, down, and around at everything from the shadows on the ground to the stars in the sky. Mini astronomers will learn about things such as the size and scale of planets using sandwich cookies and tennis balls, how to measure the speed of light with a flat candy bar and a microwave, how to make a simple telescope with magnifying glasses, and so much more! Kids begin their journey through the stars by creating a science journal to track their experiments and record their observations. Foundational skills, like how to make observations, measure angles, and determine directions, are laid out first. The lessons expand with explorations of size and scale; light, motion, and gravity; and then on to investigations of our Solar System and finding constellations in the night sky. Each lab includes: Time it will take to complete Materials list Safety tips and setup hints Step-by-step text and photos The science behind the fun Variations or ideas for taking the project further Children of all ages and experience levels will love the hands-on activities and adults will love spending quality time learning with their kids or students.

Aspiring young biologists will discover an amazing group of inspiring scientists and memorable experiments in Biology for Kids, the second book of The Kitchen Pantry Scientist series. Play disease detective to learn how John Snow tracked down the source of a cholera epidemic. Learn about biologist Ernest Everett Just’s discoveries and experiment with osmosis using eggs with dissolved shells. Make your own agar plates for growing bacteria and fungi just like Fannie Hess. This engaging guide offers a series of snapshots of 25 scientists famous for their work with biology, from ancient history through today. Each lab tells the story of a scientist along with some background about the importance of their work, and a description of where it is still being used or reflected in today’s world. A step-by-step illustrated experiment paired with each story offers kids a hands-on opportunity for exploring concepts the scientists pursued, or are working on today. Experiments range from very simple projects using materials you probably already have on hand, to more complicated ones that may require a few inexpensive items you can purchase online. Just a few of the incredible people and scientific concepts you’ll explore: Maria Sibylla Merian (b. 1647) Observe, photograph and illustrate insects on plants Scientific concepts: observation and documentation of insect habitat and metamorphosis Charles Darwin (b. 1809) Play a competitive advantage game. Scientific concepts: natural selection and evolution Louis Pasteur (b. 1822) Make a flask like Pasteur’s to grow microbes from the air. Scientific concepts: microbial fermentation and germ theory Rae Wynn-Grant (b. 1985) Use cookie crumbs to attract ants. Observe the behavior of ants and other animals. Scientific concepts: ecology and animal behavior Biology is the name for the study of living organisms, but long before the word biologist was coined, people around the world realized that by studying the world around them, they could improve their lives. Learning about plants and insects helped them discover new medicines and grow better crops. Studying animals taught them how to raise healthy poultry, cattle, and horses for food, farming, and transportation. Today’s biologists study everything imaginable. From oceans, jungles, and cities to the space station, the universe is their laboratory. Like those who went before them, they are fascinated by plants, animals, and microbes and understand that their discoveries can make the world a better place for all living things. With this fascinating, hands-on exploration of the history of biology, inspire the next generation of great scientists. Dig into even more incredible science history from The Kitchen Pantry Scientist series with: Chemistry for Kids, Physics for Kids, Math for Kids, and Ecology for Kids.
