This is a BIG book (318 pages) filled with creative ideas, Waldorf pedagogical background information, blackboard-ready illustrations, guides for teachers, equipment lists, and reasons for doing Physics in Grade 6, 7 & 8!! No class teacher will want to be without this resource!
The book is spiral bound to keep it flat on the desk while proceeding with experiments. It holds biographies of noteworthy physicists, even some more obscure pioneers in modern science for ready re-telling to a class.
Robert Sonner calls his book: a teacher’s reference book. And it is this an almost endless resource of good ideas for phenomenological scientific teaching!
