Real-Life Science Mysteries

Real-Life Science Mysteries profiles real-life scientists, showing students in grades 5–8 ways they can use science in their everyday lives. From a biologist studying the habits of garter snakes in Manitoba, Canada, to a landscape designer and greenhouse owner in Ohio, the scientists in this book share information and solutions to the thorniest problems they face in their scientific careers.

With the more than 30 activities, students will be required to try their hand at solving common science problems and performing experiments while learning about real people from diverse backgrounds, all of whom share a love for discovering how things work, why things work, and how they can work better.
