Electricity & Magnetism
More resources for 8th grade! And something different this time. Instead of me writing out the various experiments and information about magnetism and electricity, we are selling a wonderful book plus 8 pages of notes I have written talking the parent-teacher through creating a good solid study of magnetism and electricity with his or her eighth grader.
The book was written in the 1960s and as such is—well, is rather dated in many ways. However, the basic experiments that a student needs to work with in eighth grade have not changed since then. We take a phenomenological approach to the study of science in Waldorf and this lovely old book does an excellent job of giving a thoroughly hands-on study of electricity and magnetism in a clear and compelling way. Most modern and conventional books on middle grades science are too involved with computer-based information and experiences and the many excellent Waldorf resources for teachers are either too involved or too classroom-based to be of much help to homeschoolers.
