Amazing Experiments with Electricity & Magnetism

About the Book
Fascinating scientific concepts are simplified and explored in ways that kids will enjoy in the Magic Science series. Each book presents 16 simple experiments that can be performed with common objects found around the house. Amazing Experiments with Electricity & Magnetism uses tests for magnetic fields, conductors, nonconductors, and more to show kids how electricity works. Each experiment includes illustrated, step-by-step instructions and a simple scientific explanation of what is happening during the experiment. Full-color illustrations on each page.

My Take on the Book
This is one of four books written by the authors. The topics of the books relate to science and learning though performing experiments. In this particular book the experiments are related to electricity and magnetism. 

The topics are more difficult as are the experiments, but I feel they involve the children so well and are great learning opportunities. I think most of these experiments could use an adult to supervise and assist with any questions and understanding of the concepts exploring. 

Many of the materials will have to be purchased: batteries, copper wire, copper cables, and others. I feel the step-by-step directions were written very well and are easy to follow. There is a separate section on each page called "why does it happen" which explains the experiment fully.
After using the experiments in this book, I think your child will more fully understand electricity and magnetism.
