There’s a new scientific discovery to be made each day of the year in this inspiring book full of easy and exciting experiments. Why is bread full of holes? What does DNA look like? How are rainbows made? Children can find out the answers to all of these questions themselves through the simple experiments in this book. Activities include splitting light into different colours using glass and white paper, making food for birds and insects and watching cells shrink and grow by placing carrots in salty water. Includes Usborne Quicklinks to specially selected websites with more information and experiments.

Press reviews

“Hits the spot with easy and exciting experiments which help to explain many of the things children wonder about. The practical work consolidates understanding.”
“Every aspect of KS2 science is covered including light, sound and friction. All the necessary objects are easily come by and in many cases, children will have something they can use or play with (or eat!) afterwards... A truly exceptional book.”
“Children are hard-wired to do experiments, to handle things with their own hands, to get a feel for how things work and why they work. This book is a wonderful resource for children who want to create their own experiments and find out more about how everything around them works.”
“This is the sort of book that you can dip into for inspiration and do a quick science session with household materials... a goldmine of quick and easy experiments for little ones.”
