Are you interested in some quick and easy science activities? Children's science writer Vicki Cobb has a webpage of science-related videos that show children performing simple science experiments and demonstrations that are perfect for some informal science experiences.
Note: The videos are meant to complement her book We Dare You. Therefore some of the videos don't have an explanation of the science, just a "to find out more go to the book" message. You might want to preview the "Vampire Fire" video before showing it to sensitive children.
As you can see from this promotional example I found on YouTube, the videos have a homemade charm.
Vicki Cobb's books are perfect for the child who wants to do hands on science that's fun, and maybe just a bit messy.
Leave me a comment if you have any questions about the videos or the science behind them.
