Science Experiments That Fizz and Bubble:  Fun Projects for Curious Kids by Jodi Wheeler-Toppen

Series: Edge Books: Kitchen Science

Reading level: Middle grade (Ages 9-12) plus

Summary:  Directions for eleven science projects that can be done easily at home, with readily available products. Examples are making orange “soda” with orange juice and baking soda. Each project ends with “Why It Works” to explain the science behind the activity.

Illustrations: Color photographs

Comments:  The fun and energetic writing style makes you want to jump in and try each one. The projects are often given a little twist to make them unique from other similar projects you might have seen elsewhere. The instructions are clear and the photographs are helpful. Would work for upper elementary and beyond.
