World of Science

With 65 science experiments on various topics, you could easily use this as a science textbook for the lower elementary grades.
It is illustrated in full color with photos, illustrations, tables, and figures. I showed it to one of our sons, and we ended up discussing the discussing the abbreviations for gold and silver from the Table of Elements page. And yes, I remembered both of them. Score one for Mom.
