The first part of the book strives to explain and define in clear terms important experimental and ‘Physical Processes’ concepts including modelling, repeating & changing, fair-testing, predicting & explaining, forces, friction, motion, gravity, matter, mass, inertia, weight, momentum, centre of gravity and balance. All of these ‘theory’ pages may be copied and displayed on the wall as posters.
Then follows the cartoon illustrated activity sheets for the 21 circus science investigations.
This CDROM DOWNLOAD edition is identical in contents to the CDROM edition, and so contains the entire contents of the printed book edition: ‘Dr Mark’s Circus Science’, and includes both B&W and FULL-COLOUR versions of the pupil investigation activity sheets from the printed book. The CDROM material is in ‘.pdf’ Acrobat-style format – suitable for PC & MAC computers - and is perfect for teacher/pupil viewing on-screen, printing your own pupils’ worksheets and posters, and for projecting on classroom whiteboards.
The printed book and ebook (also available) contain copiable B&W A4 pupil activity sheets.
IT’S A GREAT WAY OF TEACHING, LEARNING & EXPERIENCING SCIENCE!
