    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

    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

    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

    For some kids, the study of history can be well, dry. Spark their interest with Amazing Facts in U.S. History! This activity book contains a series of quizzes on strange, but interesting, facts about Early Explorers, Native Americans, the First Thanksgiving, the 13 Colonies, the Revolution, the Gold Rush, the Civil War, World War II, U.S. Presidents, and more!

    Prior to each quiz is a summary of the topic to follow, the actual quiz questions are not covered. The goal is to spark interest in a topic. These would be an excellent way to excite interest in a topic or use as a guide for a history based unit study or research project. Quiz answer sheets provide explanations for the more unusual facts. Several "mystery from history" sections, which involve logic puzzles and word games, are also included. ~ Anh/Deanne

    If you find yourself looking for a quick overview of the basics of economics, this may very well be the book for you. Clearly divided into 12 sections, this workbook covers the topics including but not limited to: the definition of economics, scarcity, limited resources, types of business ownership, supply and demand, money, trade, unemployment, and the economic cycle. Each section includes a broad summary and provides three activities for the student to practice comprehension of the subject matter (one of the activities in each section requires further internet research). Although this book is not designed to supply a highly detailed study of the subject of economics, it is aptly named and will provide a general yet solid understanding of basic economics. Workbook is consumable and reproducible. Answers are provided. ~ Enh

    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

    For older students who did not learn cursive in the early grades, this is an instruction and practice book all in one. There are tips for posture, holding a pen, paper placement and even some good hints for the lefties. The font is simple, so if a child has had some cursive at some point, it should not be too conflicting to use this book. For example, the capital Q looks like this typed one, not like a 2. The workbook starts with pages of upper and lower-case letters. Then it moves to letter combos, days, months, common abbreviations, and onto some fabulous quotations to practice as copywork which come from historical documents and classic literature! It's very well done for a broad audience. Reproducible for classroom/home use only. Perforated, 62 pgs, pb. ~Sara

    A language arts workbook that's fun? SOLD! The variety of activities here accommodates different learning abilities: magic squares, twisted words, palindromes, acrostics, rhymes & jumbles. Each activity comes on a single, perforated page for ease of use. Topics covered include spelling, vocabulary, compound words, and loads more. I especially like the pages with the license plates! For example, you are given something like 5 FPV 031 or DLK 111 and come up with some silly inferred meaning for the letters/numbers (such as Five For Perfect Volume 31 or Dad's Little Kids x3). The magic squares take a lot of critical thinking skills to complete! It provides a good mix of challenges and is nice to use for warm-ups, early finishers or children waiting their turn with Mom or Dad. Reproducible for classroom/home use only. Answers in the back, 46 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
