Description

How do plants make their own food? Why do the different strings on a guitar have differentsounds? What does the color of a star tell you about how hot the staris? What's the difference between gamma rays, X-rays, andmicrowaves? Now you can discover the answers to these and many otherfascinating questions about energy for yourself with thisfun-filled science resource. Packed with illustrations, JaniceVanCleave's Energy for Every Kid presents entertaining, challengingexperiments and activities to help you understand the differenttypes of energy--including heat, sound, electricity, and light--andhow they bring about change in the world around you. You'll developyour problem-solving skills as you create a "leaping frog" thatturns potential energy into kinetic energy, model sound waves witha Slinky?, use a balloon to demonstrate static electricity, make"sun" tea with solar energy, and much more! Each of the activities is broken down into its purpose, a list ofmaterials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and aneasy-to-understand explanation. Plus, all projects have beenpretested so you can perform them safely and inexpensively in theclassroom, at a science fair, or at home!
