Summary "Students will reach for the stars without having to leave their own backyards when performing astronomy experiments from Janice VanCleave's new crazy, kooky, and quirky collection. They will find the North Star, demonstrate the path of a satellite, and even build their own astronomical tools using household items. Engaging analysis of experiment results will inspire readers to expand their thinking and to understand astronomy from practical, mathematical, and historical angles alike. Featuring color illustrations and safe, simple step-by-step instructions, students will love learning just how much fun science can be with these twenty-four astronomy experiments."--
