Product Description

Covering the major middle school sciences: Earth, Life, and Physical, the Holt Science and Technology curriculum provides a thorough, inquiry-based introduction to basic scientific concepts and principles that will prepare students for high school courses.

Chapters in the Earth Science Student Textbook open with a Pre-Reading Activity that helps students to organize their ideas, and a Start-Up Activity to motivate them. Each section includes Objectives, Key Terms, and a Reading Check to develop reading skills, vocabulary, and understanding. Lessons are concise, providing students with a brief explanation and examples, and are followed by a section review that covers the key idea, critical thinking skills, and math concepts. The sidebars provide quick labs and school-to-home connections, as well as links to other subjects or scientific topics. The text is enriched through additional examples, sidebars that ask students to think more deeply, and photographs or illustrated diagrams. Each chapter ends with a skills practice lab, comprehensive chapter review, standardized test preparation, and 'science in action' section. A "lab book" section in the back of the book provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for practice labs, including procedures and charts. 851 pages with index, glossary, Spanish glossary, reading check answers, and study helps.

This secular middle-school curriculum covers minerals, rocks, energy resources, fossils, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, climate, the Solar System, erosion, and more, through an abundance of hands-on labs and interesting profiles of real-life scientists.

The Homeschool Parent Guide CD-ROM replaces the standard text teacher's edition, and provides parents with daily lesson plans, teaching suggestions, and answers to student edition activities.

The included Chapter Resources CD-ROM is provided for each chapter in the text. Each chapter file provides everything needed to plan and manage your lessons, including skills worksheets (section & chapter reviews, reinforcement & critical thinking), assessments (section quizzes, tests, standardized test prep), Labs and Activities (datasheets for chapter, quick, and Labbook Labs), and Teacher Resources (teacher notes, lab notes & answers, answer keys).

Appropriate for 6th-8th grades.

    Excellent book and lots of supplements

    This book is exactly what I wanted! There is enough rigor to keep him interested, yet it is written on a level that is easy enough for my 13 year-old to comprehend by himself. This is extremely important for us as he is mostly a self-learner.

    The usual section and chapter questions are in the book, as well as mini-labs and a lab per chapter. On the supplemental teacher's DVDs, there are also two versions of directed reading questions per section (I love these!), a more comprehensive chapter review, 3 versions of each chapter test, a vocabulary activity per chapter, other activity suggestions, and more lab ideas per chapter.

    While it seems a tad pricey, it is actually quite reasonable once all of the materials are taken into account. One warning: if you would rather have your own teacher's edition, then I would upgrade to the more expensive package. I found that I did not need my own book; I just read JC's when he was not using it.

    We love this book and the supplemental DVDs so much that we are going to use the Physical Science package, as well!
