Interactive Science Homeschool Kit Includes:
- Write-In Student Edition - Full Color
- Teacher's Edition eText Access Card
Interactive Science engages students and gives you the tools you need to capture your child's interest and keep them involved in learning science.
Organized into two distinct pathways, reading and inquiry, Interactive Science makes learning and teaching science personal and engaging for both your child and you.
Interactive Science's innovative write-in student edition allows your child to get all of the content, interactivity, and practice what they need between the covers of a single book.
The write-in Student Edition nurtures the inquisitive side of your child and engages them in new and varied ways.
The beginning of the student book provides a review of the chapter organization and numerous activities.
Each Student Edition has 8 to 12 chapters (depending on the grade) covering four distinct units:
-Unit A: Science Engineering and Technology
-Unit B: Life Science
-Unit C: Earth Science
-Unit D: Physical Science.
At the start of each chapter there will be two questions: an Engaging Question that allows your child to apply their existing knowledge and a Big Question for your child to consider throughout the chapter.
Next, each chapter presents a Try It! activity that will set the foundation for the chapter.
The chapter lessons are presented next.
Each lesson will include a number of engaging activities and questions that will challenge your child to think deeper about the material.
Your child will complete these while reading through the material.
Lessons begin with the Explore It! lab that sets up the lesson.
Throughout the lesson are additional quick lab activities that show the lesson in action.
Finally, the lessons feature questions and activities that ensure your child understands the material before moving on.
Every chapter ends with an Investigate It! project that ties the lessons together.
Additionally, there are vocabulary cards, games, a study guide, and chapter review questions at the end of the chapter.
