Description of this Book

Chemical Reactions brings chemistry to life with hands-on, science-minded activities and plenty of text-to-world connections that invite kids ages 7 to 10 to discover the wonderful world of chemical reactions! You might think chemistry only happens in a laboratory with people wearing white coats-but actually, chemistry is all around us! We observe chemical reactions every day. Did you eat toast this morning? That toast was a result of a chemical reaction. Did your family have a fire in your fireplace last night? Burning wood is a chemical reaction! There's even chemistry happening inside your own body as you break down the food you eat into usable nutrients. In Chemical Reactions! With 25 Science Projects for Kids, readers ages 7 to 10 learn about the atoms and molecules that make up everything in our world and what happens when different atoms and molecules come in contact with each other. * Learn about the unique properties of water, without which life wouldn't happen. * Explore the three different states of matter: solid, liquid, gas. And then add plasma to the list! * Discover how chemistry makes your own body work the way it's supposed to. * Safe science experiments that show how chemical reactions occur guide kids' understandings of the chemistry they encounter every day. Activities include exploring candy chromatography, making ice cream, and creating a hydrophobic tower.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Explore Atoms and Molecules! With 25 Great Projects Booklist Spotlight Atoms and molecules certainly cannot be seen with the naked eye, but that doesn't mean that budding scientists cannot learn about their properties in observable and interactive ways. Slingerland utilizes an inquiry-based approach to studying the building blocks of matter, positing questions to readers that serve as the basis of each experiment and encourages young scientists to keep a notebook recording their hypotheses, observations, and conclusions. By conducting these experiments, young readers get a chance to observe even the most microscopic aspects of physical science.
