Science is not in the homework, tests or any papers, especially for kids, physics and math are all in life around you. If we as parents who have the ability to teach our own children physics experiments at home, we are gonna be great dads or mothers. And may be you will find your kids’ interest and talent in science world, that’s possible, to me, kids are all clever and ingenious, they are just lack of discovery and guidance. So, parents, get your hammers and nails, follow me to learn two easy handmade physical experiments.
The Spinning Ice Dancer
Did you ever watch the ice dancer spins on the ice rink, you can clearly see the different speed when the dancer stretch and draws back her arms. The concept of physic here is angular momentum, it means how hard to spin objects. When you stretch your arms out, speed will slow down because of momentum increases.
What you need is just an office chair, you sit on there and start to spin with someone else’s help. And your kids observe how fastest you are rotating with your arms out and in.
Go Left And Right
Prepare a coin first and that’s all you need. Then take your children to an open space, let your kids choose an original point to stand and marked it. Next start to flip your coin, up means go left a step and down means do the other way(or any other pairs of opposite directions fit your needs). After 50 times or even more toss, your kids would find out that the distance between he or her and the original point is not that far away, and sometimes may be just seem you did not move at all. This is the probability of math in charge of this kinds of situations.
See, the two experiments are not sophisticated, and all the concepts are understandable by doing the actual personal experiments. It’s fun, and I am sure kids will love you even more for you are lettered parent. For more experiments you can find on : Physics Experiments That You Can Do at Home
