Subtitle 35+ Fun Art Projects to Build Amazing Science Skills
Description Description In Science Art and Drawing Games for Kids, you’ll find an amazing collection of more than 35 hands-on art activities that make learning about science fun.
Often art and science are seen as opposites but, in fact, they are virtually inseparable! Written by Karyn Tripp—author of Math Art and Drawing Games for Kids
and creator of the popular educational blog TeachBesideMe.com—this book shows kids how art involves all kinds of science
and how science is full of art and beauty
Children ages 8 and up will follow step-by-step, photo-illustrated instructions
to explore an engaging variety of art and craft techniques
and science concepts
Energy & Motion. Create art, toys, and sculptures that spin, flap, and climb.
Electricity & Magnetism. Make special light-up greeting cards, and use magnets to create abstract paintings and solve mazes.
Living Science. Craft tiny terrariums, create plantable seed paper, and make your own paints using natural materials.
Chemical Reactions. Create exploding paintballs, grow a garden of crystal flowers, and learn to make plastic out of milk.
Color & Light. Combine shaving cream and food coloring to make marbled paper, use the sun to print on paper and fabric, and make an awesome kaleidoscope from scratch.
As you and your kids try the projects, you’ll learn the science behind how and why they work
. “Science in Action” terms highlighted throughout the projects are defined in a glossary of key science concepts
at the front of the book.
Each project is accompanied by a supplies list, and a full list of supplies for all the activities at the beginning helps you gather what you need before you dive in. Many of the supplies needed for the projects are common household items
that you likely already have on hand, while some are specialty items
you will need to acquire in advance.
