Exploring Energy With Toys available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Terrific Science Press
Fun-filled science activities make the concept of energy come alive with a variety of exciting toys. Science is not about reading textbooks and memorizing facts. Science is all about asking questions and trying to find their answers. Students should have the opportunity to formulate questions and carry out investigations. They should practice developing explanations for phenomena based on evidence they have collected. Communication and respect for the ideas of others is also an important part of science. The activities in this book will help you create a learning environment in your classroom in which all these things happen naturally. And, as a bonus, the activities use toys and common household items rather than typical science lab equipment. The toys capitalize on students' natural interest and help them see the connection between the science they do in school and their lives outside of school.
