Super science models
Learn a lot about science as you make models showing how things work. A spectacular model of an active volcano . . . a fascinating representation of the solar system . . . scale reproductions of atoms and molecules .
Inside, you'll find easy-to-follow instructions for 25 great models that reveal the worlds of astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics. You'll also get helpful hints on displaying your models, including advice on backboards, scale models, stands, and other clever techniques.
As with all of Janice VanCleave's books, every project can be created at home or in the classroom with safe, inexpensive materials. Through models of Earth's layers, the states of matter, an electric circuit, and much more, you'll discover how scientists use models to make it easier to describe things and share their ideas.
