My ds did an experiment with his aunt last week and now he wants to do more. I am afraid of winging it (bad experience back in my teaching days) so I was looking for some ideas of books and such.

What drives me crazy with the kid experiments that you find online or even in a lot of books is that it tells you how to do the experiment, and then it doesn't explain WHY like why does the egg float if there's salt water? WHY? And I don't know enough to explain that stuff without another book . . .
We love Mudpies to Magnets at our house!
The author has written a couple of things - at least 2 "mudpies" books and another called "everybody has a body". I check them out from our local library every few months or so, but you can pick them up used here and there.
