Fun Experiments with Light by Rob Ives is a great book full of fun activities. With most of the required materials being ones you likely have at home or in a classroom, this book teaches the science of lights with more than ten crafts. This book will teach kids how to make a camera, kaleidoscope, microscope, and more. The book also includes an introduction to the science of light, a glossary, and an index.
Each experiment starts with an explanation of what will be made. The steps are laid out in an easy-to follow-format, and the experiment ends with an explanation of the science behind the light. The design of the book and the illustrations are simple yet eye-catching. This book is a fun, educational resource perfect for homeschool, summer boredom, or any classroom. Although no time is specified, many of the experiments seem quick to build. And likely they will provide hours of entertainment afterward!
