Description: We provide elementary grade modules encouraging inquiry (investigation) of physics topics, although we do have a few astronomy activities as part of the selection of the program. We also place some emphasis on reading/ literacy/ children's literature by including the reading of a book as part of each visit. Our modules could be worked in family groups, but our main focus has been on school classes and group investigations.We are expanding our program to use it as an opportunity for teacher-education students to become directly involved in classroom visits as "assistants" to regular Fun Force members.
