Reviews - What do customers think about Forces and Motion: From High-speed Jets to Wind-up Toys (Investigate the Possibilities)?

Hands On Science Made Easy  Jan 12, 2010
The teacher's guide gives you teaching tips, additional material, and answers to the questions in the book. The student book is basically a lab book for the student to record everything from the experiments and questions in the book. It covers The Activity: Procedure and Observations, Thinking About, Dig Deeper (extra activities for further learning), What Did You Learn, and Stumper's Corner (student writes 2 questions about the topic that are meant to "stump" someone).

My daughter likes the short lessons with the experiments. The student book (journal) helped her stay focused on the task at hand. She also appreciated the glossary at the back of the book.

I like that everything is laid out for the teacher. If you have the supplies needed, you can quickly look over the lesson the night before and easily teach the lesson the next day. Or, if you have an older child, they can do the lesson completely on their own. We did have some issues of not having the needed supplies on hand (walking toy, wagon, spring scale), but, for the most part, the items used in the experiments are household items.

We will be using this set as part of our current science curriculum. It's a great way to reinforce concept that my daughter is learning. You could use this as a science core by adding more in depth study into the concepts covered. While this set is geared towards grades 3-6, you could easily beef it up for higher grades.

Note: This is a creation science based resource. I received a copy of this book set in order to do a review on my blog. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
Forces & Motion From High Speed Jets to Wind Up Toys  Dec 5, 2009
Are you afraid of teaching science? Do you wish you could make your homeschool science program more interesting? Would you just like to have some fun with your kids designing cool science experiments?
Forces and Motion is a fun program designed for grades three through six. The program includes an easy to use teachers guide, a colorful student book, and a student journal with review questions and spaces to record progress.
The materials used in the science experiments are low cost and most can be found around the home without having to make a purchase.
Forces and Motions contains items to explain the concepts in simple and humorous stories, such as the flying creme pie, which demonstrates Newton's First Law of Motion.
As a person who disliked science in elementary school, I would have enjoyed this program which makes science easy, understandable, and fun.
Fun and Educational  Dec 5, 2009
Tom DeRosa and Carolyn Reeves have created a fun and educational series of science workbooks for kids aged 8 to 11 years. The student workbook is colorful. The student journal has plenty of room to record observations. The teacher guide contains concise objectives and goals for each lesson. There are 20 terrific investigations (lessons/experiments) in each text that are designed for children in 3rd through 6th grade.

"Forces and Motion" introduces the scientific minds of Archimedes, Daniel Bernoulli, Galileo and Isaac Newton. Topics investigated include friction, gravity, jet propulsion, pulleys, and much more.

"Energy" focuses its teaching on light, heat, magnetism, circuits, and energy from solar, wind, water and nuclear sources.

"Matter" teaches chemistry, acids and bases, salt, metals, phases of matter and much more.

These books would enhance the science curriculum of homeschooled and publicly educated kids. They would even be fun "rainy day" activities without an education requirement. They contain creative teaching activities including dramatic sketches, experiments and writing assignments.
