Description

From physics to forensics, from the largest clouds to the tiniest ants, from Issac Newton to elephant dung, "Exploratopia" overflows with things readers can explore using the simplest, everyday items, such as eggs, paper clips, soda bottles, vinegar, and plastic cups. Kids will love these innovative activities and will have fun learning all at the same time.
