The following is a list of the materials we have prepared for Elementary Teachers which could best be described as "Physics". Each topic has been divided into: Background Material (to help the teacher to understand what we think is the important idea of the topic), Teaching Suggestions, and Student Activity Guide. Details about the purpose of the activity, materials required for the activity, and what the teacher must do in advance of the activity are to be found under Background Material.
