CREEPY CRAWLIES & THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD, Second Edition
More Than 100 Hands-On Science Experiments for Children
by Sally Kneidel
2015, 240 pages, b/w photos & drawings throughout. From monarch butterflies to hissing cockroaches, this excellent book shows teachers and parents how to use bugs, insects and critters to teach children the five steps of the scientific method: question, hypothesis, methods, result, and conclusion. Focusing on fun as well as education, and operating on the premise that doing is learning, the book offers more than 100 different activities which will ignite children’s curiosity while also building foundations for critical thinking and scientific understanding. This classroom-tested collection of experiments is a perfect resource for teachers or just an afternoon of educational fun at home. The second edition includes updated content and four new insect species: the monarch butterfly, the black swallowtail butterfly, the bessbug (stag beetle), and the Madagascar hissing roach.
Paperback; 8-1/2 x 11″.
