Volume 2, for Grade 7, concerns itself with further studies in acoustics, optics, heat, electricity, magnetism, and mechanics.
Many experiments are included with each section.
These books were written for class teachers in Waldorf schools. At the same time, however, they can serve as an introduction to a phenomena-centered study of physics for anyone interested in pursuing this approach. Each of the three volumes begins with the same basic general introduction to the teaching methodology. Then the various fields of physics appropriate to the age group are introduced. A discussion of the main topics in the particular field is followed by detailed descriptions of a series of simple experiments.
All three volumes are newly edited and reformatted in a handy workbook size for ease of teacher reference in preparing main lesson presentations and experiments. Illustrated.
