Product Description
What are the main systems involved in keeping our balance? Can they be fooled? Watch your students become scientists as they dig into these fascinating questions.

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. These labs are a part of a complete unit of study on Bones, Muscles, & Nerves geared to a middle school audience (grades six through eight).

Beautifully illustrated and well laid out, these lab activities are easy to use from the very first page. 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 this single volume so no additional books are needed. Engaging Science Labs are useful for classroom or homeschool environments.
