Archimedes and the Door of Science

by Jeanne Bendick

Archimedes opened doors for studies in math and science, and this book can open those same doors in your child’s mind (or your students’ minds).

Bendick writes about Archimedes, his life, and various chapters are dedicated to ideas he had and inventions he made. Each of these chapters are good openers for various studies in your classroom (or at home).

The amazing thing was that so much of what he learned and discovered had to be rediscovered many years later because his teachings and writings had been lost. (maybe misplaced, since he is credited with these things later.

Good for fourth grade up.
