Product Description

Your kids can learn how the human body works with 40 hands-on experiments that show how we move, smell, taste, and speak. They’ll see body systems in action with activities like building a digestive tract from socks and pantyhose, sculpting red blood cells, and making vocal cords out of rubber bands. Soon, they’ll start thinking like a scientist as they answer questions during each experiment and take notes on what they learn. Kid-friendly instructions provide step-by-step guidance and detailed diagrams to make these projects easy enough for kids to do with minimal supervision. Each project uses inexpensive, everyday items like cotton balls, glass jars, and vinegar, so kids can get started right away. With connections to STEAM topics, these experiments give kids confidence in what they learn as they apply their new skills to progressively more challenging activities.  128 pages, softcover. Ages 5 and up.
