Not your grandfathers physics class !
The typical elementary education curriculum does not deal directly with this. The UIUC science & math requirements are shown below:
In addition to the obvious (Physics, Astronomy, and Chemistry), these do:
Elementary Ed students typically take Food Science and Nutrition and Geography(or Geology) to satisfy their PS requirement
Contrast this with the K-4 National Standards:www.nap.edu/readingroom/books/nses/html/6c.html
Q:Where will the teachers learn all this stuff ?
Methods used are consistent with the way they will ultimately teach their own classes.
Appropriate Scope (?)
1. Uncertainty and the Nature of Science
2. Atoms and the States of Matter
3. Heat and Temperature
4. Mass, Weight and Balance
5. Volume, Density, Floating, & Sinking
6. Measuring and Graphing Motion
7. Simple Forces & Newton's Laws
8. Investigating Gravity
9. Simple Machines
10. Simple Circuits
11. Magnets & Motors
Our picks for now
This is a great opportunity to show students “how to figure out”the answer to questions they will get from their class some day.

OK – I admit this is a bit stupid - but it’s a good excuse to do cool demos
