Product Description

Discover the World of Plants through the fun, unique approach used in the Great Science Adventures Series.

Organized around 24 lessons, each with a mini-book project, lab activity, and graphic organizer project, students will explore types of plants and how they reproduce; what roots, stems, leaves, and flowers are and what they do; what tree rings tell us; botanical terms for plants; and more.

Lessons are written to the teacher and tie together the various elements of the curriculum. Each features primary concepts to teach, vocabulary words, a note on which "Lots of Science Library Book" mini-book to make & read, lab activities, graphic organizer instructions, and "Experience, Investigations, and Research" enrichment/extension projects. Clear directions with step-by-step, leveled instructions, pictures, and helpful information make presenting lessons easy once the pre-lesson preparation is completed. A final cumulative project completes the course.

Each "Lots of Science Library Book" mini-book is numbered to match a lesson, and when completed, features the content for each lesson. Books are designed to be read to students, read independently, or used as research materials. Teachers will need to photocopy pages in order to create the booklets.

The 3D Graphic Organizers are also organized by lesson number, and provide pictures and graphics to be duplicated and used as manipulatives or other forms of visual reinforcement. These allow students to break down complicated information into an easy-to-remember format they can then analyze and review.

This flexible book is designed to be used as a multilevel resource or as a curriculum guide for a single student. In the "Lots of Science Library Books," the large print designates text for all students, while additional smaller print is given for older learners. Within the lessons for the teacher, pencil icons denote beginning (K-1st Grade), Primary (Grades 2 & 3) and Intermediate (Grades 4-8) levels.

This book is organized by section type (Teacher's Section, "Lots of Science Library Books" section, graphic organizer pages, etc.). Lessons take 1-3 days to complete. Grades K-8. 143 pages plus reproducible section; softcover and non-consumable if pages are reproduced. Pages are not perforated for removal.

    I needed a multilevel approach to science this book fits the bill. The activities include lap book elements to make creating an interactive learning record easy. However, we loved it for the mini books that create a simple lesson review. We completed almost every investigative experiment with much enthusiasm. My students are first through seventh graders.

    As a busy teacher I appreciate that they assume I have a basic knowledge of the subject. I don't have to wade through paragraphs of information to summarize it. Instead there are easy to read bullet points. After gathering necessary supplies, I simply do a quick review of concepts and begin teaching within 10 minutes.

    This Great Science Adventures book is the second that I have completed with my elementary-age children. These topical books are sophisticated for elementary students, yet make their material accessible even to young children, with mini-books and different well-described, easy constructs (sequencing, diagrams, foldables). This author really understands how to make children understand and enjoy science. The experiments are quick and to the point and usually require nothing beyond regular household items.

    Although difficult to reproduce, the hands on aspect is wonderful for hands on learning.

    I was looking for a science curriculum that I could use with both of my children (grades 4th and 7th) at the same time each day to help free up some of our busy homeschooling schedule. I can not say enough about how much they have enjoyed this book, the experiments are very "do-able" not requiring a lot of money or things you have never heard of, or are able to find. They love making the books and the "hands on" approach is excellent for both the gifted child and the child that has to work a little bit harder to grasp things. They make it very easy to adjust the course to suit varying ages. It is nice to have a science course that gets excitement from my children each day instead of groans! I am looking forward to using all of the books in this series and so are my children!
