Description

This is a rich resource book for Steiner-Waldorf teachers which offers a comprehensive set of ideas for teaching phenomenological chemistry.

Based on Sonner's decades of creative teaching experience, the book includes:

-- clear descriptions of over 70 experiments, supported by notes on child development and Steiner's indications;
-- illustrations appropriate for main-lesson books;
-- biographies of noteworthy chemists, ready for re-telling to a class;
-- teacher's notes on particular things to watch for or do, and important safety precautions, to ensure experiments are safe and successful;
-- equipment lists

The book is spiral-bound so it can be laid flat open during experiments, and is presented in full colour for extra clarity.

Class teachers will find this to be an invaluable reference and curriculum guide for Classes 6, 7 and 8.

Reviews

'Whether you are an experienced class teacher or teaching physics of chemistry for the first time, you will welcome this pair of books by master teacher Robert Sonner. With many demonstrations and experiments not found in other Waldorf resources, Sonner's practical instructions, clear explanations and useful background material will allow you to take the teaching of physical science to a new level.'
-- Roberto Trostli, author of Physics is Fun!
