Physics Experiment for Children 3 Nov. 2006
By E. Mackinney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This small paperback is an excellent book for teaching Physics to young children. Filled with simple experiements that exemplify the principles of Physics, it is an easy guide for parents and children through the physical world. I highly recommend it as a very complete course for elementary children who are home schooled or for those who enjoy learning through experimentation.

Perfect for building intuition 12 May 2009
By Marynna L. Lindsey-Kerce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Too often, physics students learn to rely on mathematical formulae without really understanding what is happening. Muriel Mandell's little gem offers a set of deceptively simple experiments for helping young students build basic skills and intuition which are so necessary for later studies. You'll need only household items to do all the experimentation described here. Use this book as a starting point for discussions of Newton's Laws of Motion; the relationship between pressure, temperature, and volume; states of matter; and more. Highly recommended.

Outdated materials lists and bad science 23 Aug. 2010
By T. Rodgers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish I hadn't bought this book. It was written in 1959 and, of course, uses 1959 household materials. When was the last time you had a glass baby bottle or even a glass soda bottle lying around? How about that screw top can of floor wax? This needs updating badly.

One of the first experiments is titled, "Which is Heavier, Hot Air or Cold?" The explanation just concludes hot air weighs less without explaining that, with applied heat, some of the warmed air expanded out of the bottle. There's less air in the bottle to weigh!

I can not recommend this book. If you use it as is, you will find yourself constantly searching for substitute materials. You will also be teaching incorrect or incomplete concepts.

fantastic book of physics experiments 13 Feb. 2012
By audrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book for homeschooling and of the many science books I used, it was one of my favorites. It is an older book, first published in 1959, and thin, but don't let that fool you. There are 103 experiments that are simple, use easy-to-find materials, and illustrate principles with elegance and clarity. I was consistently pleased with these lessons and demonstrations.

There are seven chapters: Air, Water, Mechanical Energy and Machines, Heat, Sound, Light, and Magnetism & Electricity. Each chapter contains 15-20 experiments, and each experiment includes instructions, a line drawing, the predicted observation and an explanation. There is an index at the back.

Brilliant, compact and invaluable. Appropriate for middle school through high school. The paper quality is good, the binding is strong and the book lies flat for easy reference by busy scientists.

Highest recommendation.
