      Kathleen Wile narrates the complete text on the Discovering Design with Chemistry Audio Book USB flash drive (8G). This is just chapter content (including examples), and not the comprehension questions or experiments. Your auditory learners will love this and the articulate and clear recording. Play it anywhere you have a USB port – on your computer, in your car or other listening devices which have a USB format. You can download the audio files to your computer and MP3 player or iPod from your computer. I tried this in my car, and it was so easy to just plug and play. This makes listening on the go much more convenient. This flash drive format also eliminates the problem for those who have no disc drive on their computer or MP3-compatible CD player. This is a great companion to the text!

    Rarely has a book appealed more to me at first glance. Remaining uncluttered, the concept of "playing with words" is evident in the colorful, graphic font manipulations (lines of type that sway), the cute illustrations, and the lists wonderful, whimsical, but never wayward words. This is a book about choosing the right word when you write. I use the word "appealing" quite a bit, so I thought I would look through the lists in this book and find a new one. I quickly discovered that this little diction worktext did not include "appealing" in any of its lists (or at least not that I could find). That means that I could put it in a "my words" section on one of the list. Would it best go on the Cheerful Clown Fish page or the Exuberant Sea Otter page or perhaps under the Ways to Describe Appearance or the Ways of Speaking list?

    Confused yet? This not-quite-a-vocabulary program, not-quite-a-thesaurus – it's all about discovering just the right word to use when writing. It features structured word lists organized around Character Traits, Ways to Describe, and Ways to Move with a few miscellaneous lists thrown in for good measure. Each list contains nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs. Students are encouraged to playfully interact with these lists with the goal of acquiring quality word choices to incorporate into their writing. Using games and family activities to become familiar with the layout and content of the book, students can then use it independently as they endeavor to interject more definitive word selections into their compositions. Interspersed throughout the book are "Quotes to Inspire Your Writing" taken from classic literature as well as biblical quotes designed to underscore whatever topic is the focus of that page's lists.

    The suggested grade levels for this product indicate it should be used by emerging writers – those who need to find exactly the right word – as they practice their writing skills. Such a student might scan the Generous Manatee list looking for "ly" words (abundantly, bounteously, copiously), or strong adjectives (exorbitant, magnanimous, plenteous) or verbs (showered, bestowed) and feel quite empowered by the choices. However, I also think much younger children (upper elementary) could benefit from this book – becoming familiar with the lists, playing around with the words, etc. I can also easily imagine using this book myself as I seek alternatives to my overused word choices.

    At less than 100 pages, one might think this spiral-bound volume by Loranna Schwaeofer published by IEW is a bit pricey. Although it is reproducible for one homeschooling family or classroom, some of the colorful charm will be lost. Also, each student may want to personalize his own well-worn copy. The fact is, I know of nothing else quite like it – an opportunity to build one's vocabulary, a tool for strengthening one's ability to write with style, and a delightful immersion into the world of words. ~ Janice

    Oh, the feel of a nice, thick (1 cm.) wooden pattern block! Don't tell your children that these aren't just toys! The bright, enticing primary colors seem to draw even the smallest of our children into play. Proportioned shapes allow for the construction of infinite designs. Even before they begin to use them for "work" on symmetry, congruence, similarity, measurement, fractional relationships, counting, sorting, and geometry, they are discovering the unique relationships between the blocks and getting plenty of experience in patterning and spatial problem-solving. We've had hours of enjoyment with our set and, with 250 blocks to the bucket, there's enough for several children to construct or work simultaneously.

    Imagine discovering a whole new world. Imagine having a question put to you that leads you to a discovery impacting the world and forever changing how people think. Pasteur had this exact thing happen. At first he wasn't sure, but as his inquisitive mind bent to the task, he kept on experimenting. This book tells the story of how Pasteur discovered microbes and the effects they have. Full page, colorful pictures bring this 48-pg book to life. ~ Zach

    In this read-aloud approach to science, middle-grade students will discover basic biology, chemistry and physics concepts in an interactive and exciting way as they learn about the lives of famous scientists throughout history. Students will read biographies of famous scientists including Archimedes, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Ben Franklin, Louis Pasteur, Thomas Edison, Marie Curie, Einstein (and more). They will also perform experiments, build a science portfolio, complete mapping exercises and learn new science vocabulary. The combination of biographical information and scientific discovery will really bring scientific concepts to life! Each lesson in the guide is in outline format, with specific reading assignments; a supply list for hands-on activities; recommended websites and more. Recently updated and now in full-color, this Beautiful Feet guide still utilizes many of the excellent resource books from the previous edition, with some new additions. Experiments are now taken from DK's Way Science Works, and supplies needed are listed in the lesson outline. Most supplies are household items, although a few specific items are required (suggested sources are provided in the front of the guide). A microscope is not required for the course, but there are microscope activities to complete if you do have access to one. This literature-based study will take one year to complete at a pacing of three lessons per week. Resource books and several of the suggested specialty supplies are listed below. Great for tactile learners and literature lovers.

    Detectives today are pretty dependent on science for digging further into evidence. All kinds of materials, from hair and blood, to fibers and bugs are sent to crime labs for further study, and often, a single clue can solve the case. With this book, kids can go "behind the scenes" in a crime lab, and learn all about different pieces of evidence and how they are studied, and how they can participate in their own way. Five chapters include forty experiments in areas including observation, investigating clues left at the scene of a crime, how chemistry and biology are used to analyze evidence, and how documents can help solve crimes. In the first chapter, young detectives will hone investigative skills by observing scenes and remembering details, using their senses to identify hidden objects, setting up a crime scene and looking for evidence, interviewing witnesses, and more. The second chapter goes into more specifics, with kids making and identifying lip prints, fingerprints and voiceprints; examining strands of hair, examining cloth and paper fibers, making casts, examining impressions, learning how ballistics evidence is gathered and more. In Chapter 3, students will test mysterious substances to discover their identity, while Chapter 4 discusses how teeth impressions and bones are studied, how to estimate height from foot size, the basic principles of DNA testing, how decomposition aids forensic scientists and more. In Chapter 5, kids can study indented paper, analyze handwriting and typewriting, and counterfeiting. A well-rounded and exciting group of experiments that gives students a not-too-grisly glimpse into scientific crimefighting. - Jess
