This supplemental workbook contains fourteen activities that let students explore key concepts in physical science. Each activity is posed as a question. Each question is supported by brief background information, an activity that will help answer the question, and extension ideas for students who want to explore the topics further.
Each activity also gives the student the key concept or what to expect in the experiment, a materials list of common household items, and diagrams with step-by-step instructions.
The electricity topics include static electricity, how electrons move, space bullets, crystals and minerals, semi-conductors, solar power, and radiation detection. The energy topics include forces, how force and work are related, gravity and friction, storing energy, transforming energy, and force and acceleration.
