Your students will investigate, create and discover while acquiring knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. The open-ended learning activities give students opportunities to explore scientific concepts through active experimentation and design technological contraptions with actually work. They'll make concoctions such as fizzing potions, crystals, critter food and musical vegetables. They'll learn how to whip up creations that include Awesome Dough, Rawhide Glue and Glitter Squeeze Paint. And they'll turn everyday items into original kid contraptions, using creative problem-solving skills. Step-by-step instructions are provided with each project. Also included are clear objectives, extension activities and assessment tools for the teacher.
