The sixth grade physics block was amazing! The only resource I used was Trostli’s Physics is Fun!, which I can’t recommend highly enough. The lessons were well explained and there was plenty to do. My only complaint, if I can call it that, was that it was hard to choose which experiments to leave out! We did not do the beautiful Chladni plates experiment, but aside from the Chladni plates, I found that most items for the lessons were things I had on hand or could substitute fairly easily. Teal recorded experiments and information in a small main lesson book.
We only made it through the chapters on Sound, Light, and Heat. I was prepared with all of the items for Magnetism, but we ran out of time. I plan to finish that and Electricity as part of seventh grade physics.
I managed to shatter a glass aquarium during one of the light lessons. Thank goodness we were outside working and not in the kitchen. I would have been finding glass shards for weeks!
Thanks for visiting!
