Product Description:

This resource will help young students to create unique projects that can actually be operated, and in the process, to also learn how to incorporate laws of physics. Each of these projects require a handful of different household or easy-to-find items, making these relatively low-cost (or even cost-free) experiments. Each project features a labeled picture of items required, a step-by-step instruction guide with illustrations, a difficulty level, approximate build time, project variation ideas, and a scientific explanation of how physics effect the item’s operation. Features 25 different projects, divided into type categories. Categories are as follows: Forces and Motion, Liquids and Reactions, Shapes and Structures, and Light and Sounds. A glossary in the back defines select scientific terms. Adult supervision may be required for some projects as they may involve use of sharp objects or other materials that should be used with caution. 159 pgs, hc. ~ Brianna

We have used the Physical Science, Biology, and Chemistry forms of these tests. They are a great way to know that my son is learning. The tests are relevant to the material he has read and assesses his working knowledge very well. I highly recommend this.
