Investigating Solids, Liquids & Gases with Toys Science Book

Product Details

Toys, gadgets, and fun-to-do experiments help students explore states of matter and changes of state. Boil water while cooling it with ice, demonstrate how air takes up space...using a bottle that burps and investigate the realtionship between pressure and volume of a gas...with a marshmallow inside a syringe! Innovative investigations like these will empower middle and high school students to explore the states of nater and changes of state-using inexpensive toys and common household items like balloons, paper bags, Silly Putty, facial tissues and plastic Easter eggs. The programs promote toys and household items as ideal science materials because they're already a user-friendly, everyday part of a young person's world.
