A noteworthy review of Glass Jar Science from Children's Bookwatch on February 1, 2020
The eight volume ‘Learn About’ series from The Child’s World is an extraordinary and fun ‘Glass Jar Science’ books that include Learn About Seeds; Learn About Clouds, Learn About Volcanoes, Learn About Ocean Zones, Learn About Tornadoes, Learn About Snowstorms, and Learn About The Galaxy. Each individual 24 page title includes a hands-on, science oriented craft project that can be made in a glass jar to demonstrate each topic and encourage further learning in the subject. Each title also features informative sidebars, a table of contents, a phonetic glossary, an index, an introduction to the author, and sources for further learning. Especially recommended as supplement curriculum textbooks for students K-3 grade, this thoroughly ‘kid friendly’ series is unreservedly recommended for elementary school, family home schooling, and community library collections. While each title in this outstanding series is available individually ($19.95), schools and libraries should acquire the entire set for the benefit of their young students and patrons (9781503840010, $159.60).
A noteworthy review of Glass Jar Science from Booklist on October 1, 2019
Introducing ocean zones to young children, this slender volume offers basic information on how upper zones differ from lower ones in light, temperature, and pressure. The presentation begins in an unusual way, with a four-page chapter devoted to a hands-on project: filling a jar with five liquids of different densities. The colored liquids represent ocean zones though distinct, horizontal levels of increasingly dark layers, from clear rubbing alcohol on top to black-dyed corn syrup. Following the hands-on demonstration, a two-page, illustrated section introduces each zone, including its basic characteristics and a few creatures that might live there. The uncluttered pages feature color photos and large type in wide-spaced lines. Despite its activity-first organization, this volume from the Glass Jar Science series (8 titles) introduces a topic seldom featured in primary-grade books.
