Turning Kids On to Science in the Home: Energy. Book 2.
Liem, Tik L.
This is the second book in a sequence of four volumes written and designed for parents of students of science, particularly for those at the lower and upper elementary and junior high or intermediate level, senior high students, college students preparing to teach science, and all those individuals who are interested in science and the application of science in daily life. This volume consists of seven chapters that contain 125 discrepant events (occurrences or happenings which go against what we usually think likely) dealing with different types or forms of energy and the transformation from one into the other. Each of the chapters contains demonstrations that can be used to build lessons dealing with the sources of energy, heat, magnetism, static electricity, current electricity, light, and sound. Instructions for each event include materials, procedure, questions, and an explanation. Emphasis is placed on the use of simple materials. A list of available science educational materials from Science Inquiry Enterprises is included and an index is provided. (LZ)
