How are Experiland’s e-books applicable to me as a parent?
“I listen and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” — Unknown
Science projects are an awesome part of science that encourage your children to engage in cool and exciting hands-on learning experiences that they are sure to enjoy and remember! By working through our science experiments, they will learn about science in the best possible way – by doing things themselves. Sure, they can learn a lot in science class or by doing their homework, but there’s nothing quite as much fun as learning by getting their hands dirty by doing some fun science experiments!
Involvement and Togetherness
The Experiland collection of science experiment e-books were especially designed to be used by parents and children simultaneously. You and your children will have the opportunity to invent, construct and learn about the world around you together in a fun way. Science projects can be a lot of fun for kids, but will be even more rewarding if the adults plan to be involved too! All of the science experiments contained in our e-books have been tried-and-tested to be safe, fun and informative for both young and old. The projects have been carefully selected to provide a real understanding, admiration, even a passion for science, and are the most likely to bring valuable ‘together-time’ to busy families.
Encourage fun, but safe learning
Science experiments should be enjoyable, interesting, and thought-provoking, but most importantly, they should be safe to do! Experiland makes every effort to provide tried and tested science experiment and project ideas that are safe and fun for children to do. It is nonetheless, every parent’s responsibility to supervise their children whilst performing our science experiments and to choose only the experiments that they deem to be safe to do in and around their own homes. Each of our experiments clearly indicates whether it can be done by kids alone or if it should be done under a parent’s supervision.
Inquisitive minds produce independent kids
The aim of our science project e-books is to encourage children to explore the world around them in new ways and develop critical thinking skills that they can apply throughout their lives. When children are taking part in science experiments, they learn about the scientific method, pose questions and analyse results. By making fun gadgets and gizmos such as a kaleidoscope, periscope, intruder detector, rain alarm, foxhole radio, fruit powered battery, homemade perfume, lava lamp, invisible ink, water turbine, insect trap, water clock, water purifier, compass, astrolabe, depth indicator, barometer and many, many more, children can discover how forces and energy are used in the environment or in machines. Our e-books with its lively illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions will stimulate children to adapt and develop their own variations of the experiments. This promotes curious thinking which is essential in the education of today’s child.
Specially chosen to appeal to kids from grade 1 to 8, each experiment answers a particular question about a specific category of science and includes an introduction, list of the materials you need, easy-to-follow steps, an explanation of what the experiment demonstrates as well as a learn more and science glossary section! Each of these easy-to-understand sections helps explain the underlying scientific concepts to kids and will inspire them to create their own related experiments and aid in developing an inquisitive mind. For the most part, there is no need to buy special materials, but children may want to visit the library for additional information on a topic that interests them.
