The basic objectives of Finding Out About Electricity are learning about electricity, discovering different types of electricity, making a simple battery, and making an electrical current. Students also get to make their own simple, electric-powered balsa wood vehicle.
The Finding Out About Flight teacher’s book provides detailed instructions for educating students about the force of gravity, pneumatics, and hydraulics as well as a brief history of aviation and its impact. Cross-curricular objectives for math, science, technology, language arts, and social science are included.
The Finding Out About Flight student book, also included, teaches the force of gravity, pneumatics, and hydraulics as well as a brief history of aviation and its impact. A variety of activities and experiments enable students to design, build, and test parachutes, several types of rockets, hot-air balloons, kites, and more.
This study begins with the history of magnets, dating back to 1200 B.C. Finding Out About Magnetism is full of fun and engaging activities, experiments, and games that enable students to create a magnetic field, study magnetic poles, and make their own magnets and compasses.
The key objectives of Finding Out About Static Electricity include teaching students about static electricity, experimenting with static electricity, understanding positive and negative static electricity, and exploring uses for static electricity. Students investigate through a variety of experiments.
The Exploring Roads, Tracks, and Pathways student book begins with a visual study of directing structures – or pathways that lead or direct someone or something – such as roads, rivers, and pipelines. Students learn about movement, time, and angles as they study theme park rides and roller coasters.
Finding Out About Air is a basic study of the importance of air to all living things. Experiments include fundamental studies in gravity and lift. Students make drawings from what they observe in nature and make a whirly flyer that will hover like a seed on the air.
