Fun and fascinating science is everywhere, and it’s a cinch to learn—just ask a science teacher!
We’ve all grown so used to living in a world filled with wonders that we sometimes forget to wonder about them: What creates the wind? Do fish sleep? Why do we blink? These are common phenomena, but it’s a rare person who really knows the answers—do you?
All too often, the explanations remain shrouded in mystery—or behind a haze of technical language. For those of us who should have raised our hands in science class but didn’t, Larry Scheckel comes to the rescue. An award-winning science teacher and longtime columnist for his local newspaper, Scheckel is a master explainer with a trove of knowledge. Just ask the students and devoted readers who have spent years trying to stump him!
In Ask a Science Teacher, Scheckel collects 250 of his favorite Q&As. Like the best teachers, he writes so that kids can understand, but he doesn’t water things down— he’ll satisfy even the most inquisitive minds. Topics include:
“Providing exactly what the title promises, this is a treasure . . . it’s great for reading to kids of all ages. . . . [T]his is a steal at any price. Engaging, informative, and brightly written, the book will find a grateful, interested readership.”
“A great gift for any curious minded reader—young or old.”
