New Reviews of Hands-On Science!

I recently provided three blog readers the opportunity to receive a copy of Hands-On Science: Particles in Motion.  They agreed to review the book and have written some excellent information for you!

Hands-On Science is a K-6 experiment and activity book.  It provides discussion and thought-provoking questions along with practical application.  The experiments can be completed with an entire homeschool, that is to say, a wide range of ages, at differing levels of difficulty simultaneously.  The best part is, you probably already own every item required to complete the experiments!

But I’ll let you read what these ladies have to say about it.

Here are the Reviews!

If you’re looking to grab a copy of this book for 20% off, be sure to head over to the Homeschool Science Press Facebook page, (like us), and find the discount code!  If you are already a Facebook Liker, head to the special offers tab.

Hands-On Science

I’ve selected three reviewers to receive copies of the newly revised Hands-On-Science vol:1- Particles in Motion.  They’ll be receiving hard copies of the books to use in their homeschool and review later this spring.

Reviewers needed: Hands-On Science

I’ve been busy this week, but the latest revision of Hands-On Science is finally complete!  This book is for K-6, and for multi-grade families it is perfect.  It is chock full of experiments and activities on these topics:

  • Matter
  • Density
  • Volume
  • Thermodynamics
  • Weather
  • Climate
  • Rivers
  • Oceans
  • Erosion
  • Aerodynamics
  • Four Forces of Flight
  • Astronomy
  • Orbital Motion

My favorite activity in the book is The Molecule Game, which the author, Liz Brough, has introduced throughout the text to demonstrate concepts from molecular motion to erosion.  Basically it is a bunch of kids running around the room in organized chaos under guided instructions to demonstrate a point.  Children careen off the walls with instructions like “heat up!” and “cool down!”.

Folks, its 200 pages of experiments and activities that use everyday materials you already have around the house such as bricks, ping pong balls, balloons, modeling clay, and jars.

And I need 3 bloggers to review the new book!

Do you think you would be a good candidate?  Do you have children being homeschooled in the K-6 grades?  I need someone who can set aside time enough to do 4 or 5 experiments at least throughout the book in order to provide a review by May 30th.  Think about it, because I know we’re all busy with the school year!

Leave a comment stating why you think you’d be the blogger to review Hands-On Science.  Head over to the Castle Heights Press store website to look at the product listing.  You can follow Homeschool Science on twitter and facebook if you like, but that’s not how I’ll be selecting the reviewing bloggers.
