Little scientists will understand science in seconds with this essential homework-helping guide. Learn about everything from molecules and magnetism to rockets and radio waves and find out how a hot-air balloon rises, how erosion flattens mountains, how light waves zip through space, and how the human eye sees colours!

This is the perfect homework guide for parents and their children, with all core curriculum areas of science included.

Reviews

Clarity of language in the explanation and hundreds of easily-understood diagrams which serve as models for how students can showcase their own work, this becomes a ready reference book for budding young scientists that will support learning, answer questions and inspire more.
