Hands-On Physical Science by Laurie Westphal
Book DescriptionIntroduce your students to the fascinating world of physical science. Kids naturally love experimenting with everyday elements in the world around them, especially when it comes to messy chemical experiments and jaw-dropping physics adventures. With Hands-On Physical Science, teachers have a way to channel that enjoyment by introducing more than 75 exciting, hands-on experimental lessons in physical science to their students. This book gives teachers everything they need to set up exciting classroom activities such as an examination of Newton's laws by building Alka-Seltzer rockets, a lesson on energy through the design and building of roller coasters, and a look at chemical and physical changes through the creation of paper. With its fantastic experiments and simple instructions for teaching the complex topics of chemistry and physics, Hands-On Physical Science should be included in every upper elementary and middle school science teacher's curriculum."

Author Biography - Laurie Westphal
Laurie Westphal learned science in the same manner as many other students, through the use of chapter questions, copying notes, and reading various chapters in the science textbook. After questioning this practice, she decided to teach science to try and break the mold. Westphal was given the freedom to develop engaging product-based lessons and activities for her students, the kind of teaching she missed while in school. After using this method of teaching science for 14 years, both overseas and in the United States, as well as presenting staff development and working with gifted education, she now works as an independent gifted education and science consultant. Laurie has made it her goal to share her vision for real-world, product-based lessons that help students become scientific critical thinkers and effective problem solvers, rather than simply question answerers.
