We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Friedhoffer explains the science behind everyday items encountered in the grocery store. The match between this theme and the science is somewhat awkward, resulting in an uneven treatment of too many topics in physics, chemistry, biology, and psychology. Activities for readers are sorted into observations and experiments on simple concepts and accompanied by black-and-white sketches and explanations of results. Bib., glos., ind.

Gr 5-8-Friedhoffer presents a variety of experiments that can be conducted using products found on supermarket shelves, including fruits and vegetables, packaged foods, cleaning supplies, and dairy products. In addition, the author considers how grocery store designers use the study of human behavior to plan the location of aisles and the arrangement of products. Each experiment includes a list of materials, step-by-step procedures, and a brief discussion of results. Boxed "Observation" activities and "Challenges" are scattered throughout. Explanations are clear and thought provoking, and the writing style is lively and humorous. Some of the line drawings help clarify explanations; others are cartoonlike. Safety icons and cautions in bold print are included where needed. A conversion table for English and metric measurements appears in the appendix. A resource section includes related books and Internet sites. Readers will learn a great deal about consumerism as well as the physical science of common supermarket products.-Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA Copyright 1998 School Library Journal
