Fun with Physics: Real-Life Problem Solving for Grades K-3.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This teachers' guide presents scientific background succinctly and in an easy to read format for teachers of K-3 students. The learning theory is explained and modeled and activities reflect a hands-on, minds-on philosophy. The exercises were tested in non-science classrooms and learning activities incorporate inquiry-based learning, process skill development, and problem-solving skill development. Topics for activities include simple machines, electricity, heat, and liquids. Appendices contain references, resources, basic scientific principles, material related to gender equity, problem solving activities, and selected science proficiency outcomes. (DDR)
