Getting Started with Physics
In this section, there is a list of the main scientific field of study you will learn in your Kindergarten school! These science topics are organized based on universal study curriculum. To start with a particular topic, please click on the link shown in the following.
Here are the scientific concepts:
- When a material is touched or collided, they push on one another and can change motion.
- A bigger push or pull makes things go faster.
- Properties of materials can be observed, measured and predicted.
- Objects can be described in terms of the materials they are made of (clay, cloth, paper, etc.) and their physical properties (color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility, attraction to magnets, floating and sinking, etc.)
- Water can be a liquid or a solid and can be made to change back and forth from one form to the other.
At the end of the labs in this unit, students will be able to:
- Practice common techniques that field scientists use in their science journals.
- Describe the relative position of objects using one reference (e.g., above or below).

In physics, refraction is the change in direction of a wave passing from one medium to another or from a gradual change in the medium. Refraction of light is the most commonly observed phenomenon, but other waves such as sound waves and water waves also experience refraction.
|Thermal Conductivity of Metals
Have you ever touched something? That became hot enough to burn you only moments after it was cool to the touch? This can happen when you stir a pot of soup on the stove with a metal spoon or roast marshmallows over a fire with a metal rod. So what explains why it’s a
|Temperature and Pressure
Temperature and pressure is important topic in physics, and here we learn an experiment to get a concept on these things.
|Sounds and Wave
That became hot enough to burn you only moments after it was cool to the touch? This can happen when you stir a pot of soup on the stove with a metal spoon or roast marshmallows over a fire with a metal rod. So what explains why it’s a better idea to stir your soup with a wooden spoon and roast your marshmallows with a wooden stick? Objects made of metal can quickly conduct unwanted heat right up to our hands!
|Chemical Reaction | Water Volcano
Water Volcano. The mixing of the vinegar and baking soda produce a volcano like foam. The answer? The mixing of the vinegar and baking soda produce acid-base reactant. The reaction creates carbon dioxide gas that bubbles up from the mixture. This trick is the perfect rainy day activity for all ages (adults too!). The possibilities are endless – so grab a glass of water and start making magic!
