“Teaching Physics with Toys”
Posted July 16, 2008on:
This is a great resource for a Physics or Physical Science teacher. In fact, this book is within arms reach of me as I type this. I would say it is one of the first places I go when I’m looking for a creative new activity or experiment. The cover says it’s for K-9, but I use it with my seniors and find that the labs and activities are just fine.
I referred to this book in my post about the construction of an electric motor using a D cell, wire, and a magnet. The book is a wealth of ideas and I’ve used it as the starting point of an experiment. I mentioned in the other post that there is an updated version that I have not seen.
Summary: Worthy of your shelf space, rated 4/5 Einsteins.
