Grades 6-8 Physical Science: Physics

Description

Grades 6-8 Physical Science: Physics

Take your children on a hands-on exploration of motion, forces, energy and more with this multisensory study of physics! It’s time to experiment with physics in a fun and engaging way that your children will never forget! Highlights include over 35 hands-on experiments to engage your children and provide a multisensory exploration of classical physics. Each chapter includes current and active links to multiple videos, hands-on activities, experiments, readings, worksheets, charts, interactive websites, games, full-color high resolution graphics, and more!

This unit study is part of our physical science core curriculum series for grades 6-8. The time needed to complete this unit study will vary for each child, but you should expect to spend approximately 60 hours.

Take a peek inside: Physics in daily life History of classical physics Motion and force Speed, velocity, and acceleration Friction Gravity Galileo Newton’s three laws of motion Momentum Centripetal force Tension and compression Physics in art and architecture Fluid dynamics Atmospheric pressure Buoyancy and density Pascal’s principle Bernoulli’s principle Aerodynamics Work and machines Simple and complex machines Potential and kinetic energy Amusement park physics Energy transfer Thermal energy and heat Heat transfer Heat engine and combustion and much more!

All activities in this unit study are presented in an easy to follow format with an active and updated web link. Click on the link and the best resources on the World Wide Web appear for your children. The links bring the world to your children by providing streaming videos, interactive web sites, educational games, audio files, and more. At Intellego Unit Studies, we believe in the varied learning styles and multiple intelligences of every child. That’s why all of our unit studies include reading and writing activities, videos, art, music, comparisons, drawing and painting, discussions, hands-on activities, art projects, full-color high resolution graphics, printable activity pages, and more!
