Introducing Science for Smart Kids: Electricity and Magnetism! My self-directed nonfiction book for smart kids, filled with hands-on experiments and activities that deepen their understanding of the content, while challenging them to think critically along the way is finally here!
What’s it all about?
I’ve said it before, and will probably say it again and again… I believe kids learn best by doing. They need to be actively involved in their learning and in their world. They need to be exposed to all sorts of different experiences as they’re growing up so they have a chance to stumble upon their passions.
And they need to read lots of great books.
Science for Smart Kids: Electricity and Magnetism is the first in a series of nonfiction eBooks for kids.
- Kids who are passionately curious.
- Kids who ask a lot of questions.
- Kids who want to know it all and experience it all.
- Kids like yours and mine.
How is it different?
I was a teacher who worked with lots of amazingly smart gifted kids before I left the classroom to pursue writing full time. And all of those kids wanted to know everything, and they didn’t want to wait until I designed the perfect unit or research project. They just wanted to know… and do.
This book was written with them in mind.
- Do you have a bright elementary kiddo that really wants to learn more science? Hand over this eBook, set out some basic materials, and step out of the way. Let him or her read the book and do the activities while you are there to help or facilitate.
- Is your little guy or gal super inquisitive, but can’t quite read or work independently? Read this book and do the activities together.
- Are your upper elementary or middle school agers chomping at the bit to play with wires and batteries without your help? Give them the eBook and supplies, then ask them to share their discoveries with you afterwards.
Science for Smart Kids: Electricity and Magnetism is a 47-page nonfiction eBook written at roughly a 5th/6th grade level – for kids! Throughout the book, going along with the flow of information, are more than 20 hands-on activities and experiments for your child to try right then and there.
Take a look at the table of contents:
There are so many great things to discover in the book, that is can easily fill your requirements for part of your elementary or middle school science curriculum. Or, it can be a fun extra. My kids read science books for fun, and love when I throw in experiments for them to try.
This is play for my kids.
I hope it can be play for yours, too. If you need more information about the book, check out the For Smart Kids page.
I hope you and your family enjoy these activities. I can’t wait to hear how your kids enjoy them!
