    Have you ever wondered how much of the science-fiction world of Star Wars is based on real science? Through the 30+ experiments in this book, children will embark on a journey to discover the science of Star Wars, with activities inspired by the planets, creatures, droids, and technology from the films. Most experiments use easy to find items, although a 400x microscope is recommended for later experiments. One unique feature of this book is that the experiments are identified by difficulty level as well as material costs. Movie tie-ins, step-by-step directions and "secret" science explanations make this appealing to the science loving child or a science resistant Star Wars fan. A tremendous asset for upcoming science fairs or to add more engaging, hands-on learning to your day. Vibrantly illustrated. 126 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    This reproducible book is a very complete collection of workbook pages to complement any study of biology. Use the pages to supplement your curriculum or simply for a review if they've already completed a biology course and want to brush up on the basics. The worksheet exercises feature charts to complete, matching exercises, crosswords, labeling, completing definitions, multiple choice questions, fill-in-the-blank questions, and classifying. A small sampling of the topics covered in includes cells, elements, bacteria, Punnett squares, genetics, human systems, structures of various animals, botany, metamorphosis, osmosis, diseases, and food webs. These worksheets would be especially beneficial if your curriculum is long on information and short on exercises. - Melissa

    This book is composed of over 100 reproducible worksheets that cover various aspects of earth science. The exercises encourage students to identify different things using words from the provided word bank. Students do everything from labeling hemispheres and landforms to filling out charts describing clouds and weather patterns to identifying scientific equipment and units of measure. A few crossword puzzles and dot-to-dot activities are also included, but most of the worksheets just prompt students to use words to answer questions. The worksheets can be used as a general review or teachers can select exercises throughout the book to correlate with their studies. Almost every area of earth science that is covered at these grades is included somewhere in the worksheets, including weather, rocks and minerals, seasons, planets, volcanoes, and oceans. An answer key is included. ~ Rachel S.

    Now you can use those bears for more than just counting! This reproducible book provides directions for tons of activities and games to play, all using teddy bear counters and all reinforcing early math skills. The book is divided into nine sections; exploration, patterns, early number sense and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, puzzles with games and investigation, and graphing and interpreting data. Each section has between two and nine different games to aid in teaching the different concepts. The creative "fair" games are captivating and normally require little more than teddy bear counters. If they do need additional materials, they are simple, such as paper clips, containers, construction paper, etc. - Melissa

    "Modeling Writing after Great Works of World Literature Vol. 1." If you're learning to write, why not learn from the best? It's a great concept that's well-implemented in this new writing offering by Jill J. Dixon, B.S. Ed., M.Ed. Focusing on descriptive writing, Jill has chosen some of the best literary passages as models, including excerpts from:

    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Describing an Object)

    A Christmas Carol (Describing a Place)

    Robinson Crusoe (Describing a Character)

    Wind in the Willows (Writing a Dialogue)

    "Gift of the Magi" (Writing a Short Story)

    "Ants and the Grasshopper" and "Shepherd's Boy and the Wolf" (Writing a Fable)

    "Paul Revere's Ride (Writing Poetry - Ballad or Narrative)

    Each of these nine units is broken into ten 15-to-45-minute daily lessons - though Jill cautions not to progress too quickly if a child has not mastered a skill. Objectives for each day are asterisked and should be read by the teacher before beginning each unit. Since lessons are addressed directly to the student, the program will require minimal teacher time in actually completing each lesson. You will need to do some preparatory instruction, dictation (once per unit), and check work completed. Each unit begins with an excerpt from a "classic", includes a good amount of grammar (parts of speech) instruction, some mechanics, has the student find another good example of the genre being studied (and doing some comparative / grammatical analysis), and culminates with student writing and proofreading. Every unit also includes a dictation exercise from the included (or another) classic excerpt. The student is then to check his result against the written copy. Units are systematic, instruction is clear, and the whole course is well-organized and ready to pick up and go. Jill has included several helps and references also, in the back of the volume. The first is a sheet on "The Characteristics that Make the Best Writing The Best". This is used as the basis for discussion of supplied and found excerpts. A proofreading checklist is included to encourage and help with self-editing. For the parent is a helpful sheet on grading criteria. My only dispute with this is the point (out of five) given for having a "topic sentence at the beginning and a concluding sentence at the end of each paragraph". Just skimming the excerpts included confirm much "great" writing is not "formula" writing. I agree that a beginning writer may need to start out this way - but it makes for boring writing if you insist each paragraph be structured so. Additional Literary Passages for Modeling Writing are included and listed by genre so that you can continue or reuse these lessons again and again with different literature, if desired. For the teacher and student is a How to Write Guide that takes you through the steps for each type of writing. And, lastly, a key to the parts of speech exercises in included for you. All in all, there is a fair amount of grammar and mechanics instruction included in this volume in the context of writing and proofreading, though the author suggests supplementing with Easy Grammar, Daily Grams, Editor in Chief or Great Editing Adventures if you feel you need more specific or intensive instruction. Other recommended materials are a dictionary and thesaurus for each student. A writing or grammar handbook would also be helpful - especially if your skills are a little rusty. Permission to reproduce is given for the excerpts and the proofreading checklist. These are the only consumable components, and each student will need his own. All in all, this program looks like a well-organized, easy to use, effective writing program that I'm personally eager to try!
