This guide includes background information and hands-on experiments to explore the fundamental concepts of energy. Students explore the science of motion, heat, sound, and light with a series of simple activities that incorporate both English and metric measurements, using safe student thermometers, balances, rulers, measuring tapes, beakers, and graduated cylinders. Students learn to make observations, measure, record results, compare and contrast, categorize, make predictions, analyze and graph results, and draw conclusions.
The Primary Science of Energy Kit includes a comprehensive, step-by-step Teacher Guide with background information on the energy topics covered, instructional masters, and detailed instructions for each activity. The kit also includes a class set of 30 Student Guides and the materials needed for the students to conduct the experiments. Replacement parts can be purchased separately so that the kit can be used for many years. Prices and information about replacement items can be obtained by calling 1-800-875-5029.
Student and Teacher guides are also available in PDF format as a FREE download.
