A Phenomena Based Physics Sound, Light, Heat
Volume 1 of 3 for Grade 6

John Petering, ed.
Science in Waldorf schools is strictly experience-based, designed to show to students phenomena in the natural world and call from them observations and ideas that are new, creative and original. In this book for teaching sixth grade physics, experiments and approaches are explained in detail. The whole concept that underlies phenomena-based physics teaching is made clear, and ideas for ways to present the arenas of Sound, Light, and Heat, to give students a science-based insight into basic human experiences. Ben Franklin would be proud as this approach was his method for discovering and describing the phenomena associated with electricity! If you want to learn how lively, thorough, and engaging physics can be, this is the book for you!
