Perfect for Homeschoolers!
Janice VanCleave's science experiment books are my favorite science tools. As a homeschooler and Science Fair coordinator, I have found these to be the best resources for simple, straightforward, understandable experiments -- that always work! Her explanations of scientific principles are very clear and the experiments use everyday, easily obtainable materials. These books are absolute necessities for anyone interested in teaching children (and adults) basic and fun scientific principles.
--Jacqui Schley, Homeschool teacher & Science Fair Coordinator
"The VanCleave series of science books are great for homeschoolers. As an author, Janice has a remarkable ability to convey science concepts to all ages. We have performed dozens of the experiments, always finding easy access to the materials needed.The design of the books makes them easy to read - not visually overwhelming. I like the step by step procedures and the easy to understand explanations. The books we have used include questions and activities for those who want to further explore a concept.
The VanCleave experiments provide guaranteed results. My children find it satisfying to know that the experiments are consistently successful."
-- Anne Skrabanek, homeschooling parent
