Physical Science

A ball floats and spins in midair, fingers pass through a seemingly solid object, words whispered into a metal can are heard over 10 feet away — these are just a few of the weird, wondrous, hands-on exhibits found in the Wizard's Lab! As "science wizards," students explore the almost magical properties of matter and energy, participate in high-voltage and subzero experiments, and figure out how things really work in the fun-, fact-, and phenomenon-filled world of physics.

Electricity, Magnetism, Light, Sound, Mechanics. FOSS Connection: Grades 2, 3, 4.
Science and Engineering Practices: Asking questions, developing models, analyzing and interpreting data, constructing explanations. DCIs: Forces and motion, types of interactions, conservation of energy and energy transfer, wave properties, electromagnetic radiation.
