We have reached Day #12, our final day in our 12 Days of Wonder. Today’s spotlight is Steve Spangler Book Set – Fire Bubbles & Exploding Toothpaste and Naked Eggs & Flying Potatoes .
Steve Spangler Science is celebrating the 12 Days of Wonder and highlighting our top 12 science toys and kits that are perfect to put under the tree. As blog editor, social media coordinator and mom of two budding scientists, I will share my review of each product.
Day 12 of the 12 Days of Wonder features the Steve Spangler Book Set – Fire Bubbles & Exploding Toothpaste and Naked Eggs & Flying Potatoes .
Steve Spangler published his first book, Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes in 2010 and it was an instant hit for science fans and teachers everywhere. In 2011, his second book, Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste was published to the delight of his fans.
If you are looking for a book of science experiments to do with your children, Naked Eggs and Fire Bubbles are the perfect books. Each book offers a variety of experiments to do at home or at school with clear instructions, a list of simple materials, and a lesson on the science behind the activity. The experiments are easy to follow with “Let’s Try It,” “What’s Going on Here,” “Real World Applications” and “Take it Further” sections.
Fire Bubbles also offers a special “Teachers Only” section full of science demonstrations for the classroom teacher. And yes, these books make the perfect teacher gift this holiday season.
My favorite part of both books are the color photographs. Who knew science photography could be so captivating and breath-taking?
