Serial Science Class Procrastinator? Get a Plan for this Year's Science Experiments!

School is back in session for just about every community in America, and that means kids across the country are thinking about science class.  If you or someone you know is a serial procrastinator when it comes to science class, we've just released a series that can help: Last-Minute Science Projects!

Written by the award-winning, teacher-vetted author Robert Gardner, books in the Last-Minute Science Projects series each contain a collection of experiments that can be set-up and completed in 1 hour or less, 30 minutes or less, 15 minutes or less, or even 5 minutes or less!  Each experiment in the series follows the scientific method, shows a full illustration of the experiment set-up, and instructs readers on exactly how to measure and how to report the results.  Experiments are categorized by how much time they take, so if you're really pressed for time, you can choose one that fits your schedule!

Titles in the "Last-Minute Science Projects" series include:

Atoms and Molecules Experiments Using Ice, Salt, Marbles, and More, with experiments like "Can we Separate Atoms from Molecules?" and "Are There Water Molecules in the Air?"

Electricity and Magnetism Experiments Using Batteries, Bulbs, Wires, and More, containing experiments like "Generate Electricity with a Magnet" and "Make a Simple Electric Motor"

Energy Experiments Using Ice Cubes, Springs, Magnets, and More, with experiments like "How Fast Does Heat Move?" and "Changing Light to Electricity"

Human Body Experiments Using Fingerprints, Hair, Muscles and More with experiments like "How Many Hairs on a Human's Head?" and "How much Air in a Breath?"

Simple Machine Experiments Using Seesaws, Wheels, Pulleys, and More, with "Measuring Work and Friction", "Double-Pulley, a Simple Machine", and other experiments

Solids, Liquids, and Gases Experiments Using Water, Air, Marbles and More, with experiments like "Climbing Liquids" and "Weighing Air"

Molly the Great Misses the Bus
ISBN (Library Bound):  978-0-7660-3518-8
ISBN (Paperback):  978-0-7660-3743-4
It’s September! And it’s back to school time! Enslow’s series, Character Education with Super Ben and Molly the Great written by Shelley Marshall, has eight terrific titles for children in kindergarten through the third grade to help with the transition. Molly the Great Misses the Bus is one title that will surely help with back to school jitters as it addresses being on time as well as being considerate of others.
     Super Ben wants to show off his new outfit and for him, making it to school on time is important. Molly, on the other hand, seems to find last minute things to do causing them to be late for the bus. This is a great story to share with early elementary age children to help them prepare for their new school schedules and activities.
     Other titles in the series available in library bound and paperback editions include:  Molly the Great Respects the Flag, Molly the Great Tells the Truth, Molly the Great's Messy Bed, Super Ben Writes a Letter, Super Ben's Brave Bike Ride, Super Ben's Broken Cookie, and Super Ben's Dirty Hands.  Each title has 24 pages and features color illustrations.  Library Bound titles are priced at $21.26 and Paperback editions are $6.95.
