Get the whole family joining in around the table, as you transform your kitchen into a laboratory!
This is a very bright and colourful book, which allows you to experiment and find things out. As a teacher I was really interested in this book as I thought I would be able to use it with my class. The book is laid out really nicely with heading on the pages. There are illustrations throughout and diagrams to help with the experiments.
Although this is a great science and experimental book, unfortunately it is too challenging for my children to access, I teach KS1 children, this book I would say would suit KS2 children better, this is mainly down to the level of text on the pages and also the amount of information on a page. As a teacher the science aspects do not cover the KS1 curriculum, they do however for KS2.
This is a really great resource book for children from the age or about 7/8. This will enable them to develop their science skills and get excited about science.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
