This consumable, interactive Student Worktext is the center of instruction for the Life Science, Pearson Interactive Science Grades 6-8 curriculum. Weekly chapters are broken down into individual daily lessons, and include 3-6 lessons with inquiry labs, as well as 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 Introduction to living things, cells, their processes and energy, genetics, DNA, plants, animal life processes, controlling body processes, fighting disease 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 linkback 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 whether students are 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.
