There was a short item in "The Scientist" summarizing the same sort of
information I posted that might be useful to you. The projects include a
series of several (6-8) small (hour or so) experiments. For example, in
the unit on sound last year, they did a project with a "string-and-box
bass" to learn about vibrations, made a simple pipe out of straws to learn
about pitch, put a marker at the end of a paint stirrer (which was then
'twanged' to draw the oscillations on a piece of paper, went on a sound
scavenger hunt (looking for metallic sounds, squeaks, thumps, etc...) and a
few other projects. At the end of the unit, they put together a 'radio
play' with sound effects, and sent tapes to the pen-pal-scientist. Other
projects over the years have included making a camera (really!), designing
an "ecologically correct" town, designing an ice cream machine (with
certaqin limits on available materials), designing a "fun house", etc.
Grade levels 4-9 will be able to use the materials effectively, with
varying degrees of detail.
