Reviewed by:

40 exciting experiments to explore, create, harness and unleash energy
This informational book about energy is divided into sections on energy basics, forms of energy and energy transformations, renewable and nonrenewable energy, using energy and saving energy.  Background information precedes a list of experiments.  Each experiment outlines the time, person power required, mess alert, and key safety needed.  A list of materials, numbered instructions and photographs show the steps follow.  An explanation about the energy deepens one’s understanding of the topic.  The font of the resource is finer and smaller than found in most informational books.  As a result, it will likely appeal to upper elementary students.
Suitable for Alberta’s grade 4 Science: Waste in our World; Grade 4 Social Studies: Alberta: It Land, People and Places and Grade 5 Science: Electricity and Magnetism, and Mechanisms using Electricity.
