One-Minute Science Mysteries! (Science Naturally Book Review)

Science, Naturally! wants to “bridge the gap between the blackboard and the blacktop.”  As an independent press, they do this by publishing fun and interesting science and math resources that kids enjoy.  They strive to make these topics “intriguing and accessible” to students of all ages.

The Crew had the opportunity to review their book  One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve With Science!  ($9.95)  It was written by the father-daughter team of Eric and Natalie Yoder, who have been featured guests on NPR.  Their books have won multiple awards and accolades from the education and publishing communities.


Designed for kids 8-12, these fun brain teasers get kids thinking about science to solve these quick mystery stories.  This is the second book in this series.  They’ve also written a book of one-minute math mysteries, too.  You can read a mystery sample here.

  1. […] The books are geared for ages 8 to 12 but as you’ve read above I used this with my children in and outside of that age bracket.  I do think children as young as 5 would likely enjoy these stories but they may need some help in recalling the clues.  The authors have appeared on NPR and have won numerous awards for their book from both publishing and educational businesses.  There are also math mysteries, more science mysteries and early childhood books which can be found on the products page.  The book I received sells for $9.95 and there are bundle packages that are also offered, saving you money.  If you’d like to see a sample of the mysteries visit the sample page and if you’d like to read what other parents had to say visit the Schoolhouse Review Crew blog.
