The 2013 Summer Science Special
Summer is in full swing, and that means one very important thing here in Glueland: it is time for a brand new Summer Science Special. Like the special issue from last year, this summer’s edition is wholly dedicated to all things kid-science. A go-to guide for families who would like their summer with an extra side of science, and who wouldn’t mind having a great book or three on hand to round out their explorations.
Inside this year’s Summer Science Special, you’ll find a collection of four easy and accessible activities and experiments, each outfitted with a handy list of materials for gathering, and step-by-step instructions to ensure experimental success. In true Alphabet Glue tradition, each project comes paired with a brief book review of a favorite title that is particularly well-suited to the activity at hand, as well as a list of other great reads on the theme. And, this special issue also boast contributions from a very special guest. Dawn, of Simple Things Notebook, has joined up with us to create this science-themed extravaganza, and we couldn’t be happier to have her help!
Craft fire starters out of recycled materials and tote them along on your next family camp out, take the perennial kitchen table volcano experiment to the next level by incorporating the chemical reaction into the sides of the mountain itself. Mix up a batch of quicksand, or wow your friends and neighbors by blowing up a balloon without even touching it. And, of course, read stacks upon stacks of fantastic titles from the four brand new booklists included in this issue.
It’s high time to put a little extra science in your summer!
