Physics & Physical Science Demos, Labs, & Projects for High School Teachers This site is designed to help physics teachers share their ideas. Many of us are the sole physics teacher in their school. It’s nice to know there are others out there to help develop experiments and demonstrations. I will be listing many of my demos and activities along with a commentary on what works and what doesn’t. destinws2's Channel Twitter SmarterEveryDay Loading...

You'll Flip Over Forces & Motion Submitted by Heidi BaitzLudlow Elementary SchoolLudlow, Vermont Digital Wish Grant Does Your Classroom Flip? “We are Newtonians, fervent and devout, when we speak of forces and masses, of action and reaction; when we say that a sports team has momentum, when we note the inertia of a tradition or bureaucracy; and when we stretch out an arm and feel the force of gravity all around, pulling earthward.” James Gleick Overview:This intensive course, designed specifically for K-8 teachers, will focus on forces and motion as understood through Newton’s Laws of Motion. Conceptual and quantitative understanding plus applications to many areas of our lives will be emphasized through inquiry, learning cycles, and the use of science notebooks.

This year we used nearly all of Exploration Education's Physical Science Advanced program before I finalized the review. I'm just as pleased with the program after more than thirty weeks of lessons as I was when Brennan first started using it last fall. I've had a hard time picking a science program for Brennan. He's not an avid reader so I don't want something that was very reading intensive.
