Car Smarts: Activities for Kids on the Open Road

Put an end to "Are we there yet?" once and for all! Here are dozens of fun activities for kids of all ages, all of which can be done in the backseat during long car trips-using just a pencil, some paper, and a little ingenuity. And every one teaches science. Some of these activities-like creating the ideal dashboard instrument panel-encourage kids to use their imagination. Others involve the powers of observation, unlocking the secrets of the car and the world just beyond its windows; acceleration, car fluids, bridges and tunnels, road conditions, electricity, weather. In the process, kids will have fun (and keep out of their parents' hair) while learning about conceptual physics, land forms and geology, energy, navigation, and more.
