Get your students excited about energy and all things that move with our Hands-On Physical Science resource for grades 1-5. Combining Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, this resource aligns to the STEAM initiatives and Next Generation Science Standards. Study balanced and unbalanced forces by dropping different objects to measure the effect of gravity and air resistance on them. Measure the distance of lightning by watching and listening for thunder. Get into groups and make models of water, sound and light waves. Experience static electricity first hand by getting a balloon to magically stick to a wall. Describe a solid, liquid and gas around your home by its properties. Make a compound machine with your classmates by combining at least two simple machines. Each concept is paired with reproducible hands-on experiments and comprehension activities to ensure your students are engaged and fully understand the concepts. Reading passages, graphic organizers, before you read and assessment activities are included.
