Science Experiments You Can Eat: Revised Edition
by Vicki Cobb
Have you ever wondered what makes popcorn pop or cakes rise? Transform your kitchen (or classroom) into a laboratory worthy of a mad scientist as you make startling discoveries about how cabbage can detect acid, how bacteria makes yogurt, and how decomposed sugar turns to caramel. Then after a long day at the lab you can relax and eat your results: soup, biscuits, pretzels, cupcakes, or cookies. Vicki Cobb's seminal book has been revised and updated to encompass advances in modern technology but still provides what all kids want: a legitimate excuse to play with their food!

Pop Bottle Science
by Lynn Brunelle
The Pop Bottle bottle is a perfect miniature science lab -- see-through, flexible, air-tight when necessary, made out of a durable, shatter-proof plastic and designed with a removable top that doubles as a funnel. The Pop Bottle book is a lively, fully illustrated 96-page guide to astonishment. Each experiment begins with a challenge and ends with an explanation of the scientific principles involved. Kids can design a volcano and watch it erupt. Create a tornado-maker and see how twisters work. Make quicksand --is it solid or liquid? Observe photosynthesis in action. Simulate Jupiter's giant red spot, investigate buoyancy, demonstrate inertia, and discover the Bernoulli principle -- which allows planes to fly. Plus, turn the bottle into a barometer, a thermometer, walkie-talkie, trombone, compass -- or groovy lava lamp.

And, with the assistance of a Slinky and a helper, you'll learn about the motion of water waves. Each of the 101 experiments is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy-to-understand explanation.
