Super Simple Science at Work – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Six experiments per volume demonstrate science principles such as surface tension, centripetal force, and potential energy. Each one is first described in simple terms, then demonstrated via an experiment, and finally explained in a “Why It Works” page that features clear wording and in many cases an exceptionally easy-to-understand graphic. Good-looking homegrown science projects for rainy days.
