Serving as an introduction to electricity, this activity book explains the workings of batteries, simple circuits, conductors and insulators, motors and generators, electricity and magnetism, and the steps being taken toward more Earth-friendly electricity. The 25 simple projects—which include making a clothespin switch, a lemon battery, a compass, an electromagnet, a flashlight, and generating “lightning”—will reinforce the lessons through fun and experience, and young readers will advance their understanding of electricity further with the fun bits of trivia, sidebars, and jokes found throughout the book. Combining smart content presented in digestible chapters with engaging illustrations that flesh out explanations, the book is equal parts education and entertainment.
