Everything moves! Kids run around the playground, cars drive on the road, and balls fly through the air. What causes all this motion? Physics! Forces and motion rule the way everything moves through space.

In Explore Forces and Motion! With 25 Great Projects, readers ages 7 through 10 discover that the push and pull of every object on the planet and in space depends on how a force acts upon it. Things float because of a force called buoyancy, we stick to the ground because of a force called gravity, and we make footprints in sand because of a force called pressure.

Physics becomes accessible and interactive through activities such as a experimenting with a water cup drop, building a bridge, and spotting magnetic field lines. Simple machines such as levers, pulleys, and wedges are used as vehicles for discovery and comprehension of the foundational concepts of physical science. Using a theme familiar to everyone—motion—this book captures the imagination and encourages young readers to push, pull, twist, turn, and spin their way to learning about forces and motion.

Review:

Praise for Explore Forces and Motion! With 25 Great Projects
School Library Connection
"Looking for ways to introduce, reinforce, and build on abstract physics concepts for young children? The author manages to make physics concepts simple in a light, accessible tone that will keep readers engaged. This very colorful text includes a timeline (not often seen in a book on physics), glossary, resources, essential questions, QR codes, primary source icons, and more. The real strength is the suggested projects that are simple to conduct yet essential in understanding concepts such as force, buoyancy, and magnetism. . . An excellent addition to a classroom textbook to reinforce and demonstrate concepts. Librarians will love the focus on primary sources and scientific process."

National Science Teachers Association RECOMMENDS
"Physics is fun with this colorful and informative book for students ages 7 10. . . . The color and design graphics are bright and capture the interest of the reader. . . This book would be a great addition to the classroom library."

Gordon P. Ramsey, Professor of Physics, Loyola University Chicago, Vice President, American Association of Physics Teachers
The thought-provoking exercises are very good and cause the students to think more deeply about the concepts. . .”

Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children’s Media
Recommended -- Superior in style, liveliness, integrity and format.

This series, each book subtitled “With 25 Great Projects” is one that merits a place in every library serving children. Each book begins with a timeline, and a solid introduction. “Words to know” are defined throughout the book, and QR codes lead to interesting videos. (If the QR codes don’t work the book provides keyword prompts to lead young researchers to the right information.) Science practices are defined, and interesting projects follow that teach important principles. An extensive index, bibliography, and glossary follow. This book focuses on physics, introducing Newton, Einstein, Galileo and more. The basic forces around us are defined, explained, and explored through hands-on projects. Much of the information is on an advanced level, but explained so younger students can understand it. There’s interesting information to be found here, and the projects are unique and STEM oriented. Buy the whole series.”
