Description

"Oh, to be a kid in Mr. Whiskers' primary science classes! The next best thing is doing hands-on explorations at school or at home with this guide." -- Kirkus Reviews

Mr. Whiskers, the teacher, has that wild look in his eyes again. That's the look that means, Get ready for hands-on science! This time the subject matter is . . . matter. Using seven science stations, Mr. Whiskers encourages his kids to use all their senses to make observations and draw conclusions. Everyone's a scientist in Mr. Whiskers' class, where hands-on mini-experiments lead to Big Ideas -- and promote an ongoing passion for independent, open-ended discovery. Back matter includes supplemental activities.

About the Author

Michael Elsohn Ross is the author of more than forty books for children, most about science or world cultures. He lives right next to California's Yosemite National Park, where, for close to thirty years, he has been working as a naturalist, taking visitors on hikes and walks to learn all about the park. His ideas, he says, "come from my work as a naturalist and my adventures with school kids."

Paul Meisel is well known for his illustrations in more than thirty
children's books, including the Cool Crazy Crickets books by David Elliott, ALMOST LATE TO SCHOOL and other picture books by Carol Diggory Shields, and books in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out science series.
