Describes experiments that can be performed with plants in order to learn about their properties, including whether roots grow before stems, the importance of light, and how plants drink water.
Provides step-by-step instructions for performing experiments designed to answer such questions about the weather as what makes it rain, how do scientists measure air pressure, and how does temperature affect air movement.
Describes experiments that can be performed using solar energy in order to learn about its properties, including how different colors absorb sunlight, if it cleans dirty water, and whether it can cook food.
Describes experiments that can be performed with seeds in order to learn about their properties such as how water temperature affects seeds, the direction roots grow, and the effect of talk on plant growth.
Describes the physical properties of solids and explains how matter can change to and from a solid into a liquid or gas.
Presents experiments demonstrating the basic scientific principles of water, including information on erosion, precipitation, and condensation.
Introduces simple scientific principles involving heat, and provides instructions for experiments that can be done at home to prove them.
