Stellar Science Projects About Earth's Sky

Series: Rockin' Earth Science Experiments

By Robert Gardner

Does air have weight? Why is the sky blue? What makes a cloud? Don’t just read the answers to these questions, find out for yourself by doing simple science projects. Robert Gardner presents experiments that use materials you can find in your home or at school. Young scientists can take what they’ve learned from these experiments and use suggestions to create their own unique science fair projects. Detailed explanations that follow the experiments explain the science used in each experiment. Supports the National Science Education Standards for K–4 Earth and Space Science.

". . . these earth science activities encourage detailed and sometimes long-term observation, careful planning, and consideration of core scientific concepts. Although explanations of the scientific principles in each activity are provided, they enhance rather than replace the experiments themselves . . ."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2007

"The directions are very simple and complete . . ."

Omaha Public Schools, April 15, 2009

"A simple glossary, some references and websites for further research, and an index make this book ideal to support independent research as well as a great source of classroom activities."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site, April 24, 2007

"These projects may not be dazzling enough to excite science-fair veterans, but they may be just right for students with limited experience looking for projects that are fairly interesting and manageable."

School Library Journal, August 2007

"These experiments are well developed and clearly explained with the clarification for the questions posed given in the following pages, and can be done with ordinary household materials . . . The book is designed for a younger audience than most of Gardner's books but is as carefully set out. It is clearly written, with many of the formulas and scientific terms used being explained in context."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, March 2007

"The author . . . combines his subject knowledge with an ability to communicate this knowledge simply and effectively . . . Teachers will find that these easy experiments liven up their science lessons and will appreciate the concrete sequential approach taken by the author. These titles are a good choice for schools looking for hands-on science experiments for children in the elementary grades."

Library Media Connection, August/September 2007

". . . easy to read and nicely illustrated with cartoons that youngsters should find appealing . . . By sticking to one subject, the author is able to cover a variety of topics adequately that are related by a common theme."
