Physics Investigate the Forces of Nature by Jane P. GardnerHave you ever noticed that the physical world works in certain ways? Skateboarders use force and motion to perform tricks. If you jump up as high as you can, you'll quickly fall back to the ground. Baseball players use gravity to bring the ball back down when they throw it. When you flip a switch, electricity powers your toaster. Rock bands use electricity to put on a show. The fascinating science of physics helps you understand why forces, motion, gravity, electricity, light, and sound work in predictable ways. Combining inquiry-based activities with physics topics, Physics: Investigate the Forces of Nature features graphic novel illustrations, fascinating sidebars, youtube links, and a glossary of important vocabulary to illuminate the complex world of physics and bring it to life. Projects include designing a skateboard park that maps the forces at work on the skateboarder and the skateboard, and creating a stage design for a rock band that places electric current where it is needed. Additional materials include a timeline, a list of current reference works, and Internet resources. This title meets Common Core State Standards for literacy in science and technology; Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.
...This book is a well--written resource for classroom teachers, students, and parents. Daniel Michael, M.Ed., PMP, Manager, Learning Design and Development I really enjoyed the approach the book takes to introducing physics concepts to middle school students. The book is relational, engaging, and promotes scientific investigation. Marla Conn, Educational Consultant A+++! This title was very well thought out, with a great flow and sequence and amazing text features. With QR codes that are engaging and relevant, Physics: Investigate the Mechanics of Nature offers real-world critical thinking and application. I love this title! Andy Marquis, High School Physics and Chemistry Teacher Both a valuable supplemental text for mid-level educators and a call to curiosity for kids who wonder where their interests intersect with the world of physics. Praise for Music: Investigate the Evolution of American Sound by Donna Latham School Library Journal This overview is a STEAM advocate's delight. ...an admirable synopsis of the multicultural history of American music.
, but entertaining. Jane P. Gardner, with a degree in geology, uses her knowledge to put together an amazing tool for parents and educators to buy for their children. -- Kristina Nelson, Helium
