Both magic tricks and science experiments can leave people scratching their heads in amazement. Sometimes it seems there's not much difference between magic and science. What are magic tricks anyway? Magic tricks are really just illusions. The magician knows the secret of how to do the trick. However, to the audience the trick looks like magic because they don't understand how the trick was done.
Many magic tricks are really just simple science experiments. The magician adds a few magic words and makes you believe that something supernatural and mysterious is happening. Magicians are master showmen and work very hard to fool audiences by using misdirection and manipulating their senses. In the end, there's a scientific explanation for how the trick works that has nothing to do with magic or magic words. Recommended for grades 3-8.
