Experiments for children

Doing experiments is a lot of fun with this book. Anyone can become a scientist with quick and with easy means to discover nature’s secrets. A book for parents and children!

Children love to ask endless questions throughout the year – Why do plants need light? Why is it cold in the winter even when the sun is shining? What makes the noise in the shell? Finding the answer is childs’ play. “Explore Your World” contains lots of questions, provides detailed answers and explains how things fit together in easy terms, and showing how to do easy experiments and which materials are needed (many of them available in every household). And because there often isn’t much time, the book has quite a few additional „“5 minute experiments“ for in between. A scientists’ ABC at the end of the book informs scientists who want to know more – clarifying all open questions.

In this book you’ll find questions like:
Why is the sky blue? * Why do toads migrate?* What makes a paper airplane fast? * Why is is warmer inside black cars than in white ones? * Why do small things even cast long shadows? * Why does the wind blow? * Why is ice sometimes white and sometimes clear?
