Description

When the world of science is viewed at its extremes it is easier to study and understand and it is also much more awesome! In POWERFUL FORCES find out what it takes to move at extreme speeds, what g-force does to the human body and some truly impressive land, sea and air speed records. Uncover how shape of an object affects push and pull forces, such as thrust and drag, and how forces are used every day in all kinds of ways. And find out about one of the most powerful forces of all - gravity. This series looks at extreme qualities and experiences, and how things have evolved and adapted to reach their extreme state and how we can identify scientific information from this. Presented in a highly graphic and accessible way, EXTREME SCIENCE will appeal to visual learners and reluctant readers. Aimed at children aged 9 and up. EXTREME SCIENCE is a series of six book: POWERFUL FORCES AWESOME MATTER AND MATERIALS SPECTACULAR LIGHT AND SOUND PHENOMENAL PLANTS MAGNIFICENT HABITATS INCREDIBLE LIVING THINGS

Reviews

Science is awesome and even more so when we look at the extremes of science, which is the theme of this series. Children will be amazed by the way things have evolved and adapted to reach their extreme state, and this will heighten their appreciation for even everyday things. Support upper KS2 science studies by learning about what it takes to move at extreme speeds, what g-force does to the human body, how forces are affected by shape, how to stop things moving, and much more. The explanations are clearly illustrated with plenty of diagrams to appeal to visual learners and learning about extreme science underpins everyday science. This series looks at extreme qualities and experiences, and how and how we can identify scientific information from this. In-depth glossary explanations enhance children's knowledge. * Parents In Touch *
