Science Activities for Elementary Students, Eleventh Edition, a revision of George Lorbeer and Leslie Nelson’s classic Science Activities for Children, gives instructors practical, fun, hands-on learning activities to help teach children about science and problem-solving skills. Each activity follows the same step-by-step format: Problem, Procedure, Result, Supplemental Information, and Thought Questions. The activities are accompanied by simple illustrations that help clarify procedures and expected results. With a total of nearly 600 activities in both spiral-bound books, future science teachers will find a wealth of ideas to help them become more effective in the classroom. Science Activities for Elementary School Children features basic, introductory activities while Science Activities for Middle School Children contains more rigorous, more challenging, higher-level science activities. The elementary text discusses basic ecology, while the middle school book has activities about the Greenhouse Effect, the Icehouse Effect, Ozone Depletion, and the Eutrophication of some of our fresh water supplies. Both texts are an excellent and comprehensive resource that future and practicing teachers of elementary science will want to keep at arm’s length for ready reference.
