" A fun book full of easy sciences projects for kids and parents. My galley was optimized for digital reading, which was nice, but I would like to see the full pages. It comes across with lots of white space, and makes it seem blank. " said.

" Classic as well as new experiments featured in this book include easy to follow directions with clear pictures and information about rocks and minerals. If you're looking for some fun while learning a thing or two about geology I recommend this for you. 5 Stars " said.

"We are a homeschool family, so my children will love doing some of these labs along with their schoolwork. I've always loved collecting rocks and have passed on this love to my children.
Geology Lab for Kids included photos with to help explain each lab. The labs are separated into topics that include crystals, sediments, space rocks, as well as others. Each section includes a group of labs to help the student learn about each topic in a hands-on way. There are many edible labs included, as well as non-edible ones. I can't wait to do some of these with my children. I may have more fun doing them than the kids!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinions.

"Geology Lab for Kids by Garret Romaine is one of a series of titles (from different authors) all released by Quarry Books. The 'Lab for Kids' books have various fun and instructional exercises aimed at a younger audience.

This particular book has 52 fun projects which are arranged thematically in units. Kids can learn about crystals, geodes, different types of rock (sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic), fossils, metals, space rocks and more. I'm something of a science fanatic (admittedly more of a bionerd) and I learned a fair bit from this book. (It's been some *cough* decades since my last earth science class).

I even learned two Hawaiian words for lava "aa (pronounced “ah-ah”) and pahoehoe (pronounced
“pa-hoy-hoy”)" from the introduction.

I can see this book being quite useful for an introductory earth science lab or as a homeschooling resource. The photography is beautiful and the experiments are fun and interesting and each one includes a conclusion with questions and the "science behind the fun".

It's also worth noting that each exercise includes a safety section.

Four stars

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
