Take a look at weird and wacky stories of "mad" scientists, how not to do science, and crazy experiments that went wrong (as well as some wild ideas that turned out to be absolutely correct). These accessible and fun titles have strong links to the process of the scientific method including fact boxes that explain how the scientists forumlated their ideas. Graphs, tables, and charts allow students to become familiar with a variety of ways data can be presented.
