Move with Science: Energy, Force, & Motion. An Activities-Based Teacher's Guide.
Beven, Roy Q.
The secondary school level activities contained in this book use the subject of transportation to teach the basic concepts of physics and several areas of human biology. The material is organized into sections including curriculum design, activities, background readings, and resources. Activities focus on such topics as notions of motion stability when turning, energy and reaction, detection, and collisions and safety. These conceptual learning plans include attention grabber activities, real experience activities, unique experience activities, applied experience activities, and scientific experiments. A rationale for using a constructivist learning plan is also included. (Contains an assessment rubric appendix, a bibliography, and additional resources.) (DDR)
