Introduce your students to the fascinating world of physical science. Kids naturally love experimenting with everyday elements in the world around them, especially when it comes to messy chemical experiments and jaw-dropping physics adventures. With Hands-On Physical Science, teachers have a way to channel that enjoyment by introducing more than 75 exciting, hands-on experimental lessons in physical science to their students.This book gives teachers everythingthey need to set up exciting classroom activities such as an examination of Newton's laws by building Alka-SeltzerÖ rockets, a lesson on energy through the design and building of roller coasters, and a look at chemical and physical changes through the creation of paper. With its fantastic experiments and simple instructions for teaching the complex topics of chemistry and physics, Hands-On Physical Science should be included in every upper elementary and middle school science teacher's curriculum.
After teaching science for more than 15 years, Laurie Westphal now works as a gifted education and science consultant. She enjoys developing and presenting staff development on low-stress differentiation strategies and using menus, working with teachers to assist them in developing lessons to meet the needs of their advanced students.
