Like many early childhood teachers, you may sometimes neglect science activities -- perhaps because you don't trust your own knowledge. More Than Magnets takes the uncertainty out of teaching science, with more than 100 interactive activities in life science, physics and chemistry. For each activity, the book provides scientific background, children's typical responses to the activity, and a suggested sequence for implementing it.

The popular More Than . . . Series by Sally Moomaw and Brenda Hieronymus is a child-centered integrated curriculum for five important areas of early learning: math, art, music, science, and reading and writing. Ideal for beginning teachers and inclusive classrooms, each book offers directions and illustrations for more than 100 hands-on activities, with answers to common teacher questions. These books are guaranteed to encourage children to explore the wonders of their world! Softbound, 320 pgs.

"Once again, Moomaw and Hieronymus have written a curriculum book sure to be a hit with teachers. They present ideas for teaching science with depth and clarity grown from many years in the classroom. Teachers will especially appreciate suggestions on what to anticipate during the activities, and suggestions to integrate the activities across the curriculum. This book gives teachers the ideas and confidence they need to make science an integral part of their classrooms."
—Sharon Griffin, Ph.D. Coordinator of Early Childhood Education, University of South Carolina, Beaufort

"Finally! A science book that provides physics and chemistry experiences for young children. More Than Magnets incorporates literature, math, art, music, and gross-motor development with valuable hands-on activities. This is a book I have been anxiously waiting for. I am excited about these ideas for teaching science in the kindergarten classroom."
—Mary Jo Peairs, kindergarten teacher

"More Than Magnets is a comprehensive book packed with a wealth of practical information and studded with wonderful classroom stories and 'real-life' examples! Sally Moomaw and Brenda Hieronymus present numerous ways to engage children in interactive explorations through a science-rich environment. Children can experiment, hypothesize, predict, observe, and infer!"
—Susan S. Thorpe, assistant professor, Carroll Community College

"More Than Magnets is filled with more than a hundred activities that make science an interactive experience for children. Each chapter begins by answering the questions commonly asked by teachers, and then offers a variety of activities for children to explore. Each of the activities is accompanied by a photograph and detailed explanation of how to set up the activity or construct materials. More Than Magnets is ideal for curriculum supplementation, home-schooling, or a parentally assisted leisure time activity."
