What better way to make celebrating a holiday more exciting than to incorporate an intriguing science experiment? This title features ten fun projects that can enhance nearly any time of year around a holiday, from creating ghoulish glow-in-the-dark water for Halloween to brewing green, bubbly soda around St. Patrick’s Day. Step-by-step instructions and vivid illustrations guide students through each activity. Accessible text connects each activity to important curricula concepts such as food science, chemistry, and ultraviolet light.

I received a free copy of, Holiday Science, by Scientific American Editors., from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a really cool and interesting book, for kids of all ages, holiday science experiments, I cant wait to the St. Patrick Day experiment. The book also has ideas for science fairs.
Thank you so much to NetGalley and Rosen Publishing Group for my copy of Holiday Science by Scientific American Editors in exchange for an honest review. It published January 1, 2023.
What a neat book! The way that this book is set up around the holidays is so fun and unique, and would be fun for homeschool, and any students of any kind! This would make an excellent gift for a science lover in your life!
This hands on book features ten fun projects for any time of year but each are geared toward a holiday. Create a ghoulish glow-in-the-dark water for Halloween or brew green, bubbly soda around St. Patrick’s Day and/or literally tie dye some eggs for Easter.
Step-by-step instructions and vivid illustrations will guide young and older scientists through each activity. Note the experiments will need adult supervision as they involve some items that one needs to be careful using such as bleach and copper sulphate.
While a lot of fun, a few of the experiments can be a bit involved so read and follow the instructions carefully.
The format of the book to me is the highlight. . It’s very colorful where each experiment includes:
A scientific question
Projected completion time
Background behind the procedure
Extras if one chooses
Observations snd results
Cleanup you will encounter
I recommend this for educators, parent educator, and while this reader didn’t actually conduct any of the experiments, I had fun reading about the science.
This has lots of great activities. I teach 8th grade science and these fit well within our curriculum and would make excellent enrichment. I especially like that a lot of this is "kitchen" science and makes suggestions on where to pick up the materials.
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC. I am leaving this review voluntarily.
This is an easy to use, very hands on approach to science experiments for every major holiday of the year from New Years through Thanksgiving. There are step by step instructions and detailed list of items that will be required to complete the project as well as ways to add extra dimensions to make is science fair worthy. It breaks down how long it will take to complete each project, the science behind how each works and details on what you can expect to happen and how much clean up will be involved.
As a Sunday school teacher, I will be using this as a fun way to grab the attention of my students. Though I haven’t yet tried any of them, I do expect to try the tie dye egg one with the silk ties this week.
Thanks to Scientific American Educational Publishing and NetGalley for this eArc in exchange for my review.
