Graphic stories to explore physics

These picture books are stories within stories. Physicists invent reliable stories about the world that guide thinking and acting. Young children and their carers often use picture books to create stories.

The physics graphic story picture books are designed such that there are opportunities within this collaborative storytelling to introduce some of the ideas of physics.

The picture books are not designed to teach physics, but are rather a medium to explore ideas in physics, through which children might learn some of the ideas and practices of physicists.
