Science Snackbook Classroom Activities
From the Exploratorium’s famed Teacher Institute comes a unique, hands-on activity book that provides instructions for creating junior versions, or “snacks,” of many of the museum’s amazing exhibits. Designed by science teachers, these snacks can be used as classroom demonstrations, labs, science projects, or just for fun. All of the projects are easy to build with common materials.
This new edition includes updated activities plus several new snacks, illustrations, references, tips from teachers, and correlations to national science standards.
Using The Exploratorium Science Snackbook as your guide, you can construct an anti-gravity mirror, create electrical “fleas,” duck into a kaleidoscope, or build a bicycle wheel gyro. Discover how to create exhibits that explore the mysteries of energy and matter, light and color, force and motion, vision and perception, sound and hearing.
Here are a few sample activities from The Exploratorium Science Snackbook.
