Interactive Science for grades K-8 is based on the most meaningful research and best practices from academic research and from some of the most highly regarded experts in science education. What results is a program rooted in sound learning approaches, teaching strategies, and ideas to engage all learners, maximize learning, and apply their thinking.
Interactive Science is a fully articulated science program. Interactive Science engages students through experiences that make science personal and relevant. Through the use of its innovate write-in student edition, Interactive Science provides your child with a sense of ownership, by having them “engage with the page,” and connecting the Big Ideas of science to their own lives.
The write-in Student Edition nurtures the inquisitive side of your child and engages them in new ways. Each grade level covers four distinct units:
Unit A: Science Engineering and Technology
Unit B: Life Science
Unit C: Earth Science
Unit D: Physical Science.
Each chapter begins with an engaging question and activity that set up the lessons and focuses your child on the Big Question to consider throughout the chapter. Each lesson within the chapters is embedded with a number of engaging activities and questions that will challenge your child to think deeper about the material. 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.
