Kids will swing, run, and jump for joy when smart science combines with super sports. These absorbing activities use both body and mind and make learning science thoroughly entertaining. As children uncover the principles that underlie everything from baseball, basketball, and biking to skiing, surfing, and swimming, they'll begin to understand how the stars perform their famous moves and why some people do better than others at certain sports. And imagine what fun youngsters will have as they kick around a beach ball to see what it takes for a soccer player to shoot straight or as they sing "Happy Birthday" while doing sit-ups to find out why athletes let out those rude-sounding grunts and groans as they play.
