This comprehensive collection of nearly 200 investigations, demonstration, mini–labs, and other activities uses everyday examples to make physics concepts ways to understand. It is part of the two–volume
PHYSICAL SCIENCE CURRICULUM LIBRARY, which includes
Hands–On Physics Activities and Hands–On Chemistry Activities

For easy use, this resource is organized into the eight units of study listed below. Each unit offers a variety of activities designed to provide interaction between students and their world in a way that encourages scientific reasoning.

• Measurement
• Motion
• Force
• Pressure
• Energy and Momentum
• Waves
• Light
• Electromagnetism
Each easy–to–follow lesson format contains a concise introduction using common knowledge examples...reproducible pages for students...a "To the Teacher" information section...and a separate listing of additional, specific applications that students can relate to.

More than 300 illustrations supplement instruction, and interest, and heighten the learning process. Also included is a handy appendix that contains listings of physical quantities and their units, common conversions, units of pressure, and more.

And as a special help, each lesson provides complete answer keys and enough detailed explanation to ensure success for even the inexperienced science teacher.

You′ll find Hands–on Physics Activities can be used to supplement any physical science textbook or as a stand–alone physics program in itself. However you use it, these activities will help you inject new vitality into your curriculum.
