The consumable, interactive Student Worktext is the center of instruction. Overarching, weekly chapters are broken down into individual daily lessons, and include 3-6 lessons with inquiry labs, and an end-of-chapter study guide, review, and assessment section; a "science matters" feature at the very end looks at the application of science to real-world issues. Chapters cover the earth, water, volcanoes, living things, the environment, ionic bonds, electric circuits, electric currents, precipitation, storms, and more.
Chapters begin with a "big question" that frames the lessons to follow, and an example with prediction question. Lessons include a brief background check with highlighted and defined terms; a longer lesson with integrated questions; lesson questions that link back to the big question; "lab zone" hands-on questions; and "got it?" questions that provide an opportunity to prove that the main point has been learned, or for students to raise where they're still confused. A wide variety of questions pop up throughout, including "do the math," "what do you know?," "apply it!" and other forms of assessment, practice, and review.
The Teacher's Edition e-Text provides access to all the materials teachers need, organized by the table of contents. Click to see the student chapters and expand the folder to get to the instructional materials. Objectives, notes on how the nature of inquiry fits into the books' lesson and activities, and preparation guidelines are provided. Lesson information, teaching tips, and answers are presented around the reduced student text pages. A lesson planner provides pacing and notes for the "path of inquiry," though the "digital path" is not included, nor sold for homeschool use by Pearson at this time. This teacher's edition e-Text is not printable.
Homeschoolers, Please Note: The student workbook refers to videos and online components that are part of the "digital path," a student science website. Pearson does not include a student access code for this website and its content with this kit, nor is it sold for homeschool use at this time.
Also, please be aware that this textbook teaches evolution and "billions of years."

Homeschool Mom1 Stars Out Of 5Colorful pages but no contentOctober 19, 2015Homeschool MomQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1My daughter and I were both very disappointed in this curriculum. It "looks" great with colorful pages but there is no content to it. It is just fluff. It needs a textbook to go with it so the student can learn the information and then do the workbook. The e-text for the teacher doesn't help either. It's an answer key for the workbook. I've homeschooled for over 10 years and this was the worst curriculum I've seen. Don't waste your money on it.
