520 |a From the Publisher: The perfect way to turn children's love of active games into learning opportunities! Bring science to life as children learn about their bodies, animals, seasons, and the weather. The activities in each chapter are organized by level of difficulty, and each one incorporates fun, exciting science experiences with movement. Research shows that the most effective way for children to learn concepts is to experience them physically. Jump into Science offers just this kind of learning. Activities such as The Mirror Game, Dinosaur Stomp, and Water and Ice will actively engage children as they explore new science concepts!
