Lots of experiments in the areas of motion, heat, sound, magnetism, electricity and light. Materials, procedures and discussion are included for each experiment. Resources are provided for each. This URL gets you to the index.

Exxperiments
http://sprott.physics.wisc.edu/demobook/chapter3.htm
This site is an online book by Julien C. Sprott called Physics Demonstrations: A Sourcebook for Teachers of Physics, 1996. It discusses safety considerations of intense sounds, a demo about breathing helium and sulfur hexafluoride and why it change the sound of your voice, breaking a beaker with sound, the flame pipe and more.

Video Analysis
http://electron9.phys.utk.edu/video/
Select any Video Clip and step through it frame by frame
Pick an object and record its x- and its y-coordinate in each frame
Create a table giving the position of the object as a function of time
Copy your table into a spreadsheet for further analysis
