    If you need extra practice sheets or activities for your science students, look no further. This workbook is full of 100 reproducible worksheets that cover a wide range of topics dealing with physics and chemistry. From lab procedures, to physical and chemical properties, to simple machines, to writing binary formulas, this book covers it all. Several various testing methods are used such as matching, puzzles, short answer, long answer, completing equations, etc. Besides giving a few example answers, this book does not provide explanations: it is only meant to provide practice or assessment. Teachers can go through the whole book with students to test their overall knowledge, or they can pick and choose topics which students need additional help or practice with. This book would be a great supplement to any physical science course. Aligns with current state standards. ~ Rachel S.

    This colorful series from Singapore Math introduces early concepts in life science, physical science, chemistry, and earth science to the very young. Each book focuses on one of these sciences, and contains 29 lessons and an answer key. Lessons are a page in length, with each topical lesson containing a short informational segment, follow-up questions or a hands-on activity. The material is presented in its simplest form, and most often the questions repeated at the end simply ask the student what was discussed at the top of the page, although in some cases, it might be helpful to have read a little more material on the subject as well. The range of subjects is pretty impressive, including animal habitats, parts of the ear and eye, seeds and how they sprout, electromagnets, conductors, circuits, mixing colors, evaporation, how sound is made, sinking or floating, seasons, solar system, Milky Way, constellations, meteors, food chains, and more. As an example of a lesson, one lesson in Book 3 features a short paragraph on the properties of some common materials, followed by a blank chart. The students must decide whether some other common materials such as wood, glass, plastic, rubber and others are hard, if they can be bent, if they last a long time, and if they are attracted to a magnet. After that activity, several common materials are listed, and the student must match these to the item or construction it can be used to make. All activities are generously illustrated with friendly, cartoon-like animals and objects, and altogether the books have a "fun," relaxed look about them, even though the concepts are fairly well-presented and a little more serious that I've seen in other early elementary science programs. Inexpensive and easy-to-use, this set could easily make up a complete science curriculum for the early grades, although you may want to supplement with a little more reading, especially with interesting related library books to broaden their horizons a little more. Each book used to be available separately, but it is now sold only as a set of four books. – Jess

    This Lab Kit from Nature's Workshop includes most of the supplies needed for the labs in the Exploring Nature with Astronomy 2nd Ed. textbook, organized and bagged by lab activity number. A cross-reference sheet is included so the kit can be used with either the 1st or 2nd edition Astronomy course. Please note that this kit will not include supplies for the optional "Apologia Science Kit Activities" which are printed in brown in the daily schedule found in the notebooking journals. Apologia has made an exclusive kit available which contains supplies for the optional and textbook activities. One other notable difference between the Nature's Workshop kit and the Apologia kit is that the Nature's Workshop kit includes materials bagged by lesson where the materials in Apologia's kit are bagged by activity. There are also some variations in the types of supplies provided, most notably in that there are no food items included in the Apologia kit, while most of these are included (pre-measured) in the Nature's Workshop kit (flour, salt, oil, chocolate bar, etc.)
