      First reviewed on Redeemed ReaderExplore Gravity is part activity book, part experiment book, and part textbook that explores gravity-related concepts (cause of gravity, effects of gravity, past discoveries) and features coordinating activities and experiments. Explanations of complex scientific concepts are very student-friendly. Most activities could be accomplished at home with basic household supplies. The book is well organized and includes a good glossary as well as resources for further s [...]

      I don't remember who recommended this to me, but I will be adding it to our school library. So much information and activities packed into one book! Some of my favorite suggestions: if you're stuck in an avalanche, spit or cry to see which direction the liquids go; that will help you determine which way is up; I know you can put a scale in an elevator to help measure g's, but I might really do it this time.Only one small qualm; some times zero gravity is mentioned, then microgravity. As the book [...]

      With vocabulary words like matter, velocity, attraction, gravity and more, literacy instruction and integration would be impossible to miss with this book. It would be great in a science center library. Last semester, I wrote a paper on how the integration of science and literacy aids in maximizing learning opportunities on both ends of the content spectrum. This book would have been a perfect example of why. There are so many literacy factors about it and could aid in creating a pretty rad scie [...]

      Part of the "Focus on Science" series, this fascinating large-format paperback book introduces children to the concept of gravity, and provides 25 projects they can use to test, prove, and explore gravity. That doesn't sound particularly enthralling, right? However, the book is filled with fun facts, interesting insights and even some history on the development of our understanding of gravity. To be frank, it was fun to read, and children will enjoy the projects. Black and white illustrations ab [...]
