    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.

    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.

    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 curriculum guide for young children is crammed with a multitude of fun, educational activities to teach them about many different subjects while they learn their alphabet. The book is organized by the alphabet, with activities and reproducibles accompanying each letter. For example, the book begins with "A," which is introduced by a large capital "A," which children are invited to cover with "Aa's" they find in magazines or newspapers. The next page offers a couple of lines for them to practice printing upper and lowercase "A's" along with coloring pictures of related objects. Then it's on to the pages of activities. First there is a language arts page, which holds suggestions for such things as vocabulary words, fingerplays, recommended books, learning directions, and comparing. Then comes the math page, which introduces activities like sorting animal crackers, making patterns, and mathematical concepts like more and less. Next is social studies, which for "A" is themed around Agriculture and Farming. Children may create a farm scene, learn about farm animals, make butter and farm animal crackers, make a farm print, and learn about vegetables. On the science page, children will learn about air by finding ways to "see" it, like making simple sailboats and pinwheels, and experimenting with air. For two all-time favorite subjects of young children, art and music, there are also activities supplied. Children will enjoy making alphabet block prints, making personalized art display holders, painting aquariums

    and learning about mixing colors while creating abstract paintings, and singing "A" songs while getting acquainted with a couple of instruments. The last topic covered in each letter is gross motor/games. This page offers some games and activities to put children's energy to good use. They'll play the Alert and Auto Dodge games, learn aerobics, act like the animals, and practice being acrobats. On the backside of each activity page are reproducibles offering up reproducible activities such as coloring, matching and arranging. Some of these pages also hold the patterns needed to complete the activities suggested in the book. This same format continues for each letter of the alphabet. A total of over 600 activity suggestions, 130 reproducible games and patterns, and 50 alphabet identification pages are contained in this 320 page book. - Melissa

    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

    So, why are we offering another map outline book? Well, this one is different from the others, and we just couldn't decide which was "better", because they both would serve a slightly different user. The book begins with a Mercator Projection map of the world, followed by 45 different maps of individual countries or small clusters of countries (too many to list here). Unlike Maps, there is only one, unlabeled, map for each title, and waterways are clearly shown. An inset map of the region is included, with map's location darkened for easy reference. Also included on each page is the area covered by the map in square miles. The U.S. map is marked with state boundaries and waterways. Maps for each of the 50 states appear alphabetically, again with waterways and square miles shown. A U.S. map is inset on each page, clearly showing the location of that state in the U.S. by shading. Basically, there are significantly more country-specific maps in this book, helpful if you need more detailed maps of smaller regions. For example, Germany is its own map in this book whereas it's lumped in a "Northern Europe" map in Maps. In fact, Northern Europe is broken into about four different maps in Blank Map Outlines. None of the maps are labeled, however, so you'll need to refer to an atlas for labeling. The other major difference is the inclusion of waterways (rivers and lakes) in this outline book.
