Science is awesome and even more so when we look at the extremes of science, which is the theme of this series. Children will be amazed by the way things have evolved and adapted to reach their extreme state, and this will heighten their appreciation for even everyday things. Support upper KS2 science studies by learning about what it takes to move at extreme speeds, what g-force does to the human body, how forces are affected by shape, how to stop things moving, and much more. The explanations are clearly illustrated with plenty of diagrams to appeal to visual learners and learning about extreme science underpins everyday science. This series looks at extreme qualities and experiences, and how and how we can identify scientific information from this. In-depth glossary explanations enhance children's knowledge. * Parents In Touch *
