Dirty Science: 25 Experiments with Soil

  • ISBN 9781443113540, Paperback
  • 48 Pages | Ages 7 to 11

Go on . . . get dirty!

Think that the dirt beneath your feet is boring? Wrong! There's more to dirt than, well, dirt. In fact, don't call it dirt to a scientist - it's soil! Soil can tell you a lot about where you live and what's going on behind, or beneath, the scenes. Learn how to make a Berlese funnel that brings out tiny unseen bugs in soil; learn the differences between various soils; even change a blue hydrangea to a pink one! Is it magic? Nope . . . it's science!

With the fun, easy experiments and lively illustrations that readers have come to expect from the team behind Scary Science: 25 Creepy Experiments and Snowy Science: 25 Cool Experiments, budding scientists will discover all the fun things you can do with dirt, all while learning about the ground beneath their feet!
