This consumable, interactive Student Worktext is the center of instruction for the Physical 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 matter, solids, liquids, and gases, elements and the periodic table, atoms and bonding, chemical reactions, acids, bases, and solutions, motion, forces, energy, sound, light, electricity 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.
