Junior Scientists: Experiment with Heat (Science Explorer Junior)
by Sophie Lockwood (Author)
32 pages

Booktalk: Find out how scientists work by doing simple experiments. (It’s been over 100 degrees here for WEEKS so this seemed like a good book for all of the kids going back to school on Monday…)

Snippet:
We will use the scientific method to learn more about heat. Heat affects almost everything in our world. We feel it in our weather. We use it to prepare our food.
