    To the untrained eye, the periodic table may look like a whir of numbers and letters that lack meaning or application to real life. However, this often-confusing mass is really beautiful, organized and, when understood, greatly deepens your understanding of chemistry. Elements and the Periodic Table is a great supplement to your regular science curriculum that helps students make sense of the information-packed periodic table.

    This book offers 125 pages of activities that build logically from the explanation of elements to organization of the periodic table, and parents and teachers have permission to copy the activities for family or classroom use. Each of the four chapters begins with an explanation to the instructor and ends with a quiz or test for that chapter. Learn to name the elements, discover the use for each of the elements and put together your own table, and then play the Elements Game to become proficient at the periodic table. Activity answers are at the back of the book for your convenience.

    Something I remember from my teaching days is that textbooks can be full of good information, but they don't always offer enough of the hands-on activities for students to understand the application of the material, leaving you to track down activities from outside resources. That is not the case with this book; Elements and the Periodic Table offers great, practical activities to help students understand and apply their learning. ~ Donna

    Helping to develop the skills necessary for a wide variety of writing styles, this workbook provides lessons in the five most common types of writing: personal, descriptive, short stories, poetry, and non-fiction/reports. Chapters work through the necessary concepts from the easiest to the most challenging, for a total of 113 lessons. While the title states "for the middle-school classroom," all of these lessons can very easily be used as individual assignments or as supplemental activities in the homeschool setting. There is no specific classroom instruction, and an answer key is provided in the back of the book. An ideal supplement to any curriculum that needs more in the way of writing practice.

    For those learners who learn best by doing, this supplement offers some applicable suggestions for activities with physical and chemical changes. 78 reproducible pages divided into 10 units cover historical perspective, chemistry, elements, four states of matter, structure of matter, physical properties of matter, understanding solids/liquids/gases, physical changes of matter, chemical changes of matter, and evidence of chemical change. The front of the book offers an explanation to the teacher/parent on how to use this book, and each unit begins with a full page of teacher information that includes the topic, correlation to standards, the concepts to be covered, a lesson planner, an extension activity, and a 'real world' application. Student activity pages include student information pages that introduce the concept and vocabulary through a reading passage; a one-page 'quick check' that evaluates comprehension using matching, fill-in-the-blank, time lines, labeling, identifying, etc.; two or more 'knowledge builder' activities provide application through labs and data collecting; and there is an occasional 'inquiry investigation' which is an extension activity. The back of the book is a great reference section and includes definitions, answer keys, national standards, resources for further investigation, and more. Turn your science class from drab to lab with the addition of this helpful and easy-to-use supplement. ~ Donna

    A good STEM resource can be a great enhancement to your curriculum. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and this book offers you good ideas for hands-on activities to solve real-world problems in the areas of physical, life, earth/space, energy, and environmental sciences. If your curriculum has good in content, but tends to be less interactive, this book would be a good companion to make the material more interesting and understandable. Build a birdhouse, make a periscope, build a solar-powered racer, and more. Students will research, collaborate, design, and reflect to complete each project. The projects in this book can be used by groups or individuals, but specific instructions are included in the front of the book for group collaboration. Activity pages may be copied for classroom or family use. 60 pages. ~ Donna

    This inexpensive resource book offers a wealth of terrific life science labs that easily correlate with any life science text, and introduces middle schoolers to lab equipment. It is organized into eight chapters, covering cells, DNA, heredity, simple organisms, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, ecosystems, and ecosystem cycles and biomes. Each chapter includes information, a related science lab activity, and a review worksheet. The information is succinctly presented, often with diagrams, charts, and bulleted lists. The lab activities are excellent, and you might be familiar with some of the old life science standbys. In the chapter on cells, three pages are devoted to explaining discoveries related to cells, the parts of a microscope, the main parts of a cell, and the differences between plant and animal cells. Several labs follow, including one where you make microscope slides with onion tissue and cells from a cheek swab and compare the cells, make a cell model using gelatin and a variety of other items, and demonstrate the process of osmosis doing a lab with a bag of scented gelatin in a bath of warm water and iodine. Now, not all chapters are that involved – many of them are much shorter, with fewer activities. Teacher resource pages are found at the end of both units in the book, and these include enrichment activities and an answer key. While you will need iodine, slides and cover slips, a microscope, and a magnifying glass for the labs, all other equipment seems to be readily available household items. 94 pages, reproducible. – Jess
