If you’re playing basketball, that’s science in action! Science is all around us and in everything that we do this even more true for basketball. Issac Newton explains the concept of Motion in Physical Science by using Three Laws of Motion. In this book, you will get the chance to fully understand Newton’s Three Laws using a sport we all know and love – Basketball! Learn who Sir Issac Newton was, and dive into Inertia and other great physical science terms that help to explain and simplify exactly how “Motion” Works.
Introduces the concept of materials and the physical properties associated with different materials, such as mass and texture, using examples and simple text.
DO-4U and his friend, HEV-E1 explain the nature of forces and motion, including friction, inertia, and magnetism.
Offers an introduction to the principles of motion, describing inertia, gravity, and friction.
While at play with his dog, Newton, a young boy discovers the laws of force and motion in his everyday activities. Told in rhyme, Lynne Mayer's Newton and Me follows these best friends on an adventure as they apply physics to throwing a ball, pulling a wagon, riding a bike, and much more. They will realize that Newton's Laws of Motion describe experiences they have every day, and they will recognize how forces affect the objects around them. the "for Creative Minds" educational section includes: Force and Motion Fun Facts, Matching Forces, Who Was Newton?, and Newton's Laws of Motion (2 of 3). Additional teaching activities and interactive quizzes are available on the Arbordale Publishing website.
Briefly explains the many ways people use ramps.
Introduces structures, including their function, the materials they are made of, and how their parts are joined together, using text and activities.
You push a swing. Your brother pulls a wagon. Forces are at work all around you. But what exactly is a force? And how do forces act on different objects? Read this book to find out! Learn all about matter, energy, and forces in the Exploring Physical Science series—part of the Lightning Bolt BooksTM collection. With high-energy designs, exciting photos, and fun text, Lightning Bolt BooksTM bring nonfiction topics to life!
There are forces at work whenever you throw a ball, run up the stairs, or push your big brotheroff the couch. Want to learn more about the forces around you? Read and find out!
Introduces readers to basic ideas in physical science using simple terminology, examples, and activities, touching on such subjects as physical properties of materials, physical structures, states of matter, motion, and physical forces.
Simple text and photographs describe and illustrate push and pull movement.
Antoine Lavoisier has been called the founder of modern chemistry. The French scientist is most remembered for developing the scientific method, which is a careful, step-by-step process for proving or disproving something.
An airplane soars through the sky. A wind gust blows through the leaves. Objects are in motion all around you. But what makes objects move? And what are some different ways that objects move? Read this book to find out! Learn all about matter, energy, and forces in the Exploring Physical Science series—part of the Lightning Bolt BooksTM collection. With high-energy designs, exciting photos, and fun text, Lightning Bolt BooksTM bring nonfiction topics to life!
Playing Tug-of-War, pedaling a bike, jumping rope - these actions all require force! We typically don't notice most of the forces around us, but they surround us all the time. Find out how force works, and then harness your knowledge to design and build like an engineer! Third-grade students will enjoy learning about inertia, tension and gravity, lift and air resistance, electric and magnetic forces, combined forces, and more through this high-interest informational text filled with vibrant photographs. Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, a hands-on “Think Like a Scientist” lab activity is included at the end of the book to provide students with an opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in the text. Helpful diagrams and text features, such as a glossary and index, are also included to improve content-area literacy and support STEM instruction.
Explains the concept of push and pull movement, using many examples.
Rookie Read-About Science series.
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.
