Ann Einstein, M.A.T., editor's note: I combined the projects in this kit with ongoing art lessons, thus blending the topics. The book was extremely useful because children could do the science projects independently or in small groups. I would set the book out on a table with the selected materials for that day's lesson. The autonomy sets children free to make their own discoveries and have fun while internalizing the concepts.
