Science for Every Kids Series - 101 Experiments books by Janice VanCleave

WHAT:  This great series includes:
- Astronomy
- Biology
- Chemistry
- Earth Science
- Food and Nutrition
- Physics

And SO many more.  Most of the books present 101 experiments, including: Materials, Procedure, Results, Why?

WHERE:  Just google Janice VanCleave.  Most of these books are available used for 1¢!  Of course, you will have to pay shipping (typically $3.99).

HOW:  It's easy to link these experiments to topics of study.  For example, we are studying Italy, and will be exploring the work of Leonardo da Vinci.  He was fascinated in studying bird's wings, and how the lift in those wings could be extrapolated to human flight.  An experiment that connects to this is Lift-Off, on pp. 134-135 of the book, Biology for Every Kid.

WHO:  These books are great for:
- General ed classrooms
- Special ed classrooms
- Literacy groups
- Homeschooling
