    Bundle Description

    From dissections to muscle fatigue to reflexes, this captivating collection will introduce you to the fascinating world of bones, muscles, and nerves. If you’ve always wondered why your vision rarely blurs, how we keep our balance, or how your bones compare to those of a bird, this book will help solve the mysteries! By starting with the scientific phenomena, you'll be intrigued and excited to dig deeper into the why’s and how’s of each scientific concept.

    Beautifully illustrated and well laid out, these activities are easy to use. Experiments are clearly organized and written to the student so they do not need to be pre-digested by a teacher before beginning. Helpful tips throughout the experiments and the Teacher Notes leave the reader in no doubt about how to perform or understand an experiment.

    Both the teacher and the student are addressed in each activity so no additional books are needed. Engaging Science Labs are useful for classroom or homeschool environments.
