Introduces readers to basic ideas in physical science using simple terminology, examples, and activities, touching on such subjects as physical properties of materials, physical structures, states of matter, motion, and physical forces.
You push a swing. Your brother pulls a wagon. Forces are at work all around you. But what exactly is a force? And how do forces act on different objects? Read this book to find out! Learn all about matter, energy, and forces in the Exploring Physical Science seriesÑpart of the Lightning Bolt Booksª collection. With high-energy designs, exciting photos, and fun text, Lightning Bolt Booksª bring nonfiction topics to life!
While at play with his dog, Newton, a young boy discovers the laws of force and motion in everyday activities such as throwing a ball, pulling a wagon, and riding a bike. Includes "For Creative Minds" section.
These giant books of projects and experiments take a hands-on approach to science concepts. Hundreds of simple and easy experiments explore various scientific principles behind natural phenomena like friction, centrifugal force, and the underlying laws of physics that help make machines work. These fun yet practical experiments make it easy for anyone to become a rocket scientist! What makes a wind-up toy move? Why do you oil your bicycle chain but not your brake pads? Hands-On Science: Forces and Motion by Sarah Angliss and Maggie Hewson helps kids master the laws of force and motion through simple experiments they can conduct using common household items. Each experiment includes step-by-step, illustrated instructions as well as background information, studies, and results that help kids develop a deeper understanding of the concept.
