Summary
Sid is excited--about bugs, and dirt, and dogs, and leaves! He and his friends set out to investigate what dogs are doing when they bark, why dirt is so dirty, why insects live where they do, and what purpose leaves have. They ask questions, do experiments, examine cause and effect, and discuss their results. Sid is an inquisitive youngster who tackles the everyday ideas that preschoolers find fascinating (Why do bananas go "bad?" How does my juice box straw work? How does a bird fly without a plane?). "Sid the Science Kid" promotes science-readiness by encouraging kids' instinctive curiosity about the world around them. Each set of programs concentrates on a single scientific concept to allow children to observe, describe, and quantify, and use tools like rulers or magnifying glasses
