- Reversing poles
- Soil percolation
- How far is that star?
- And more
With each activity students will answer the question by following the outlined procedures of each activity, collecting data, and drawing conclusions. Afterwards, they can expand and demonstrate scientific reasoning by modifying the investigations and/or designing their own experiments.

The Interactive Science Activities workbooks are designed for the home environment, and modified from the lengthy lab manuals used in schools. They are custom designed at-home activities for students and parents to use on their own or with the Interactive Science grade-level bundles.
The Pearson at Home Interactive Science Activities workbooks provide children with a student-centered approach to scientific discovery. Each hands-on activity presents a child with a challenging question that can be investigated and explored independently or with parent guidance. As part of the directed inquiry process, the child will answer this question by exploring the resources, following the outlined procedures of each activity, collecting data, and drawing conclusions. In some instances, parents might need to help children with certain parts of the activity. Following the directed inquiry, the child will be given an opportunity to expand and demonstrate scientific reasoning by modifying the investigation and designing his or her own experiments to illustrate the concept. Utilizing these activities will encourage every child to think like a scientist and encourage him or her to be inquisitive.
This curriculum has been modified specifically for homeschool families. At times, there may be references to print or digital components that are not included within the homeschool bundle. This will not hinder your child's successful completion of the course.
