Our world is a wonderful, wonder-filled place. Sooner or later, each of us will be warmed by a glowing sunrise, cooled by a gentle rain, transfixed by a dancing butterfly, or rocked by crashing thunder. Wondering about these extraordinary events is the first step towards understanding our world. Elementary-age schoolchildren love to think about these and other killer science questions, such as "Why do feet smell?" and "Why are computer keyboard letters mixed up?" This brand new resource is special because the structure and content of this book supports and follows the recently developed National Science Education Content Standards for grades K-8, which are being used to structure K-8 elementary science curricula and texts--teachers need activities which support and follow these standards. This book is interdisciplinary, relating science to language arts, math, and the arts through sections in every chapter called Word Play, Magnificent Math, and Art Connections. Unlike any other text on the market, this book includes "Amazing But True" sections (with answers) which stimulate discussion and challenge students to use the Internet as a source for research. Teachers will love this book for its uniqueness, ability to stimulate young minds, and activity ideas for lesson and unit planning. Whizbangers and Wonderments is a title that is hard to forget and an activity resource book that is hard to put down! It is a volume which will bring the excitement of hands-on/minds-on science to young people.
