Hands on Science

I recently purchased these science books. They both have 10 experiments and different variations on how to execute them. I found these to be a great way to engage students when learning about every day phenomenon. Just the other day I conducted a floating and sinking activity. Students had to make a raft that could float out of blu-tack. They found it very challenging but towards the end they got it right.
