Physics for Every Kid – Book Review
Janice VanCleave's Physics for Every Kid: 101 Easy Experiments in Motion, Heat, Light, Machines, and Soundis full of exciting ideas, projects, and activities for schools, science fairs, and just plain fun!
“What is physics?” Physics is the study of energy and matter and the relationship between them. By studying physics we can solve problems and discover why things happen the way they do.
Find answers to these questions: How do magnets work? What makes a curve ball curve? What keeps an airplane in the sky? How can a pulley make you five times stronger?
The goal of this book is to guide you through the steps necessary to successfully complete a science experiment and teach the best way to solve problems and discover answers.
The standard pattern for each experiment:
General instructions for the reader:
1. Read first – read about each experiment completely
2. Collect all needed supplies – have everything ready for immediate use
3. Experiment – follow all the steps carefully, never skip a step
4. Observe – if your results are not the same as described – reread the instructions and start over again from the first step
Check out the chapters on Electricity, Magnets, Buoyancy, Gravity, Balance, Flight, Simple Machines, Inertia, Motion, Light, and Sound. Over 100 great and amazing experiments!
