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 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. Each chapter ends with a skills practice lab, comprehensive chapter review, standardized test preparation, and 'science in action' section. 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 teacher's edition includes a unit-by-unit chapter planning guide with objects, labs, resources, review/assessment, and correlations laid out in chart format. Full-color reduced-size student pages are surrounded by wrap-around teacher notes. 856 pages, hardcover.
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).
