The 21 Super Simple Astronomy Experiments workbook is a collection of 21 hands-on experiments related to the Real Science-4-Kids Astronomy curriculum. The experiments are simple and easy to do, yet they are real science experiments that help students develop the skills needed for real scientific investigation. Each experiment lists an objective, the materials needed, a brief outline of the experiment, and any graphics or illustrations needed for the experiment. The skill being explored is shown in the upper right-hand corner of each page. Doing science requires the development of different types of skills including the ability to make good observations, turning observations into questions and/or hypotheses, building and using models, analyzing data, using controls, and using different science tools. Super Simple Science Experiments break down the steps of scientific investigation so students can focus on one aspect of scientific inquiry at a time.
