about this item

This hands-on science activity book for children 5 to 8 promotes health and safety through 70-plus creative projects, recipes, and experiments. Handwashing becomes automatic and germs become real when children see the once-invisible microbes on their hands thriving in the tomato-soup cultures they’ve prepared. They rush to brush after watching the effects of sugary drinks on a tooth. Nutrition and exercise are fun with treats like Triple-Decker Mouthfuls and games such as Exercise Bingo. Lego people and Silly Putty help to demonstrate the importance of seat belts and bike helmets, and safety becomes a priority as children chant important numbers, identify exits in buildings, and more. All the activities are tested in homes and classrooms to be sure they are safe, effective, and fun.
