Description

This book encourages children's interest in the natural world by showing them how to make things such as a waterwheel, paddle-steamer, propeller plane, parachute, windmill, simple pendulum clock, spinning tops, a hot-air balloon and much more.

All the activities make use of one of the four elements: earth, water, fire or air. Some are simple enough for a six-year-old; others are challenging enough for a twelve-year-old to enjoy.

Reviews

'An exciting book for 6-12 year olds exploring the elements. Some activities are quite easy -- other larger projects would require adult help but look great fun for adults too. There is lots of interesting information on the science behind how it works. A book that makes you want to get down to the nearest stream.'
-- Hilary Woolf, Education Otherwise, October 2005
