Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Ricci
This guide was written especially for teachers of grades K-9 who are interested in using toys in the classroom as a way to motivate and teach children about the basic principles of physics. The book is divided by grade level and each lesson includes a list of the key science topics covered, thinking process skills used, estimated completion time, materials needed, step by step instructions, safety and disposal procedures, suggestions for variation of activities, explanations of the results, and reproducible student worksheets. This very thorough program calls upon students' natural curiosities about science concepts and lets them get their hands on real life examples of physics in action.
