Synopsis

Gravity, the Glue of the Universe History and Activities by Harry Gilbert, Diana Gilbert Smith

Gravity-the strange force that guides raindrops as they fall, keeps people from falling off the Earth's surface, controls Earth's orbit around the sun, and holds billions of stars together in the Milky Way-is the focus of this intriguing resource. Narrative stories trace the history of scientific thought and the process of discovery on the subject of gravity from the time of Aristotle to the present discoveries of Stephen Hawking. Chapters dedicated to astronomy expose students to issues such as the life cycle of a star and Black Holes. Field-tested lesson plans parallel the history. Simple experiments and other activities are designed to accommodate a wide variety of teaching strategies and learning styles. These activities build scientific skills, encourage cooperative learning, and teach students how science really works. Grades 5-8. Gravity: The Glue of the Universe has been used as a recommended text at Clarion University of Pennsylvania.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
