Exploring Energy with Toys Book Terrific Science

Product Details

WOW! We all wish that we had this book when we were in 4-8th grade. Use Battery Operated Toys, push toys, flip toys, balls, blaster balls, popin hoppers and marbles (to name a few) to teach about different kinds of energy. Fun-filled science activities make the concept of energy come alive with a variety of exciting toys. Observe light and sound energy produced form the chemical energy of batteries, gravitaional energy with a classroom track and the relationship between the amount of stored energy and the distance a toy is able to travel.
