Science Naturally



Hey Neighbors!

Here is a fun review from the TOS Crew.  We received the book: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve with Science!  You can find the book at Science Naturally.  Now, I suppose you could plan to do one or two a day, one to three times a week, but I think this is perfect for trips.  Quick trips or long trips, trying to solve these one minute mysteries will make the time go faster.  Each mystery has a twist that you have to solve using your knowledge of science.  Some are easy, some are not.  The book is designed for children 8-12.


The mysteries were created by a father-daughter team, Eric and Natalie Yoder.  This is the third book in their series, so if you like it, you might want to check into purchasing their other books.

The book is broken down into chapters, with titles like:Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Five More Minutes of Mysteries, plus more.  There is a bonus section with five one minute math mysteries.

My family really enjoys having books like these on long trips.  We pull them out and work on them until everyone gets tired and then we put them away for later.  It is really fun trying to solve them together.  We often take turns reading the mystery so everyone is involved in solving at least one.  Also GREAT for relieving boredom when in a hotel room or waiting at a restaurant.

Be sure to see what other TOS Crew members have to say about Science Naturally!
