Human Body (1000 Things You Should Know About) by John FarndonEarly in the 17th century, Francis Bacon decided that the best way to learn about the world was to discover things for oneself. Since then, science has been a marriage of observation and experimentation. The experiments contained in each chapter allow young scientists to investigate basic principles using common household materials and easy-to-follow instructions. The titles are filled with dozens of color photographs that illustrate experiments and provide a glimpse of everyday and extraordinary uses of the subject. In addition, engaging features such as Did You Know? boxes provide fascinating facts. The In Focus sections offer in-depth looks at specific features of each subject. In The Real World boxes highlight pivotal experiments by real scientists.
