The most effective way for children to learn about science is through hands-on experience, not through memorising theory. That principle is at the heart of Waldorf science teaching, and is the basis for this invaluable book. The authors explore the nature of 'phenomenological' -- experiential -- science' and how it can help middle-school students engage with physics, and stimulate observation and wonder. The book has step-by-step experiments that demonstrate how to approach science in this lively, real-life way. It is an essential book for any teacher who wants to bring this kind of fulfilling interaction into their classroom.

Children learn best through experiencing a phenomenon before trying to understand it theoretically. This approach underpins this valuable resource book for teachers of physics to 13-14 year olds. Covering the basic principles of mechanics, acoustics, optics, heat, electricity and magnetism, von Mackensen ensures that all lessons and experiments are age-appropriate, and focus on developing an interest in and familiarity with the phenomena being described. Written specifically for class teachers in Waldorf schools, but accessible to any teacher who wants to bring a more phenomenon-based methodology to their classroom, the book starts by introducing the fields of physics appropriate to the age group, followed by a discussion of the main topics and detailed descriptions of simple experiments. This book is recently revised and reformatted in a handy workbook size for ease of teacher reference in preparing main lesson presentations and experiments, and is illustrated throughout.
If you look at a piece of a leaf or a drop of saliva through a microscope, what do you see? Cells are the basic building blocks of life and they make up every living thing, from plants to animals, from humans to bacteria! In Cells: Experience Life at Its Tiniest, readers ages 12 to 15 investigate cells and learn how they affect our health, reproduction, criminal investigations, and agriculture. Through cell science, scientists have been able to create many things to help society, including seeds that grow better in certain locations, tools that can detect DNA at crime scenes, and immunizations to keep people healthy. To reinforce learning and encourage investigation, hands-on activities include finding and identifying bacteria from pond water and human mouths and building models of different types of cells. Links to online primary sources, videos, and other relevant websites provide a digital learning component that appeals to this age group and promotes further, independent learning while strengthening practical connections to the material. Additional materials include a glossary and a list of current reference works, websites, and Internet resources.
