    This consumable workbook provides students with an easy-to-follow plan for establishing, creating, and maintaining an interactive notebook that centers upon a study of the U.S. Constitution. The book includes mini-lessons, correlating interactive notebook pages, and informational text reading selections that cover the Articles of Confederation and the Constitutional Amendments. This interactive approach to diagramming social studies concepts encourages students to become active participants in their own learning. The lessons challenge students to create models and demonstrate their knowledge through artistic creation, labeling, and verbal explanation. While this publication has many benefits, it is not designed to function as a truly comprehensive study of the U.S. Constitution. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Learning how to diagram sentences can really help students visualize how the different parts of speech work together to form sentences. However, this skill isn't always included in English books. This workbook provides a wonderful supplement to any curriculum. It covers sentence diagramming from easy to challenging, one step at a time. After reading simple explanations and seeing examples, students practice with similar sentences. The worksheets start with just subjects and predicates and then progress to adjectives, adverbs, direct and indirect objects, appositives, interjections, prepositional phrases, participles, and gerunds. Reviews are scattered throughout, which can be used as quizzes or test if desired. The worksheets are perforated and reproducible. Answers included, 46 pgs. - Melissa

    Being a business major, I had to take both macro- and micro-economics, so my mom gave me this book to look at when I had spare time. I didn't have any economics at all before college, but I think a basic understanding such as this book provides would have been beneficial. I was surprised at how similar this book was to the things that I have learned about economics in college. On a simpler scale, of course, but the fundamental ideas being taught are the same. This reproducible workbook first introduces basic economic concepts including supply and demand along with scarcity and surplus, money value and interest, the federal reserve system, and inflation. A variety of activities are used in learning these concepts, such as case studies, graphic organizers, articles and puzzles. The second half of the book reinforces the principles with extensive, real life simulation activities. The child randomly chooses a career card with their salary, and this is their career for the duration of the book. Using this information and other concepts they have learned, they will fill out an application for a checking account, learn how to use checks and balance their checking account, understand their bank statements, fill out a credit card application, use their knowledge of loans and interest to calculate monthly payments on buying a car, fill out tax forms, and role-play many other important, real-life situations. Funny how economics is more interesting presented here than at a monotonous lecture at eight in the morning! ~ Stephanie

    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
