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, the plate tectonics, volcanoes, living things, solids, liquids, gases, matter, electromagnetic waves, thermal energy, 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."

patjrsmom1 Stars Out Of 5Interactive ScienceNovember 20, 2017patjrsmomQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I have to agree with the other two reviewers. I am currently on the phone with tech support and have been for the past hour. No one at Pearson has any idea how to help me add the second and third digital paths to accompany the text books. I was able to add one, but now the site won't let me add the others and I have been bounced around to about half a dozen people who have no idea how to fix the problem and at one point even suggested that I call CBD to see if they could fix the problem. I would not ever purchase this problem.
becky2 Stars Out Of 5pearson interactive LIFE scienceSeptember 14, 2016beckyQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I am extremely disappointed. I should have read the description closer before buying, which is MY bad, but while this workbook is beautiful and engaging and easy (all inclusive) there are so many supplemental online "digital" activities referenced for my child to do that we CAN'T. Access to these digital labs, virtual labs and interactive art is NOT included with the homeschool bundle. This is a shame. Theres one or two activities on every page that have questions referencing them but my daughter cannot do them. BUMMER. I will use the books because I bought them for my son & daughter and we already started but it took me a good week to figure out we simply couldn't gain access to these activities. :( In my opinion, Pearson should NOT be selling material to homeschool parents without granting access to all the features of the text.
Homeschool mom1 Stars Out Of 5Horrible curriculum and supportAugust 27, 2016Homeschool momQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I originally love the idea of this curriculum bc it was secular and a write in text. Thought it was going to be easy to use. Its horrible and the support for it is horrible bc its a major publisher you can't get anyone on the phone who has specific knowledge. The teacher edition is now only available in etext which has worksheets for the kids to review but you can't print them or make copies of them so they are basically useless. For a homeschooler its one of the worst curriculums i've tried to use, not really for homeschool at all! Steer clear!
