    While science experiment books abound, it can be difficult to find good workbooks for science. So, while I usually get excited about science resources, I was particularly pleased to discover this one. Intended to give students more practice and exposure to what is a weak area for U.S. students, this book covers a nice breadth of physical science concepts with a strong mathematical component. The 12 chapters include: molecules, compounds, chemistry, states of matter, mass, weight, gravity, density, Newton's Laws of Motion, simple machines, vectors, electricity, light refraction and reflection, waves, and Kepler's Laws. Chapters vary in length from 3 to nearly 20 pages, with each chapter featuring single pages that include a paragraph or two on the topic and an exercise below. While some of the activities are short answer or fill-in-the-blank, quite a few of them are math-related. In the chapter on simple machines, the first page discusses work, while the following activity gives the reader several situations and asks if work has taken place. The next part moves on to measuring work, using the work equals force times distance equation. Students spend the next two pages calculating work done using both the English and metric system. And if the worksheets in the book aren't enough for you, keep reading. A CD-ROM is included with the book that contains interactive PDF worksheets, additional printable (non-interactive) exercises and reading exercises (which focus on scientific vocabulary) for each chapter. If your current physical science program is weak in the math area, or if you're looking for additional practice, this workbook from Mark Twain Media is a solid choice and is very reasonably priced for the amount of content. Answer keys included, reproducible, 126 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Most of the book is written to the student. There are five main instructional units. The first section describes what an essay is and how to recognize an essay and its different parts. The second section covers prewriting techniques like brainstorming, research, selection of arguments, and outlining. The third section shows the steps to write a first draft. Aspects such as the thesis paragraph, transitions, paragraphs in the body, the concluding paragraph, using quotes in an essay, and footnotes and bibliography are described. The fourth section is the largest and covers editing and revising. They instruct students on how to develop and improve style and make sure the mechanics are correct. Diction, tone, sentence variety, and syntax are just a few of the subjects covered. The final section shows the student how to write the final draft. A sample essay is included, as are charts to show diagramming of certain writing techniques. There are a few reproducible worksheets and activities included in the book but, overall, it is mostly informational text, describing the writing process for the essay.

    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

    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

    The activities presented in this book cover many aspects of health and nutrition in a very user-friendly manner. Each chapter begins with Teacher Notes that introduce the topic at hand, offer suggestions for extended lessons, and provide answers for the book's activities if applicable. Then, a wide variety of activities relating to that topic provide students with lots of practical, hands-on experience. For example, students are taught how to read the BMI table and are asked to examine food labels to understand special labeling such as low fat vs. reduced fat. Topics covered include but are not limited to the food pyramid, breakfast, whole grains, reading labels, exercise, BMI, fruits & vegetables, sugar, caffeine, fats, protein, snacking, and allergies.

    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

    Kids love to read about little Frances the badger because they relate to the stories & situations about her family & friends. Author Russell Hoban was inspired by his own 4 children. This book is a way for parents and teachers to develop reading strategies using guided discussion questions & worksheets that go with familiar children's books. There are 5 titles covered: Bread and Jam for Frances, Bedtime for Frances, A Baby Sister for Frances, A Bargain for Frances, and Best Friends for Frances. For each story, there are teacher suggestions on how to best use this book and present the information, a list of vocabulary words and ideas to help you teach, a long list of discussion questions that range from specific to the story to asking the student's opinion on various topics such as favorite foods or how they would feel about something, a coloring page, and about 9 pages of workbook type activities for the student. This is followed by all necessary answers. These remind me of a literature guide but for a younger student. The teacher tips are useful and useable with any size group. Sc, reproducible, 86pp. ~Sara

    This workbook gives students thorough practice in sentence diagramming so to "make sure that students are never confronted with a sentence structure that is unfamiliar to them", according to the authors. Each lesson in the workbook is laid out in a two-page spread, with the explanation for diagramming each new part with examples at the beginning, followed by exercises where the student must underline specific parts of sentences and diagram, create sentences to fill in blank diagrams, unscramble sentences and then diagram, and find mistakes in already diagrammed sentences and re-diagram them. Sentence parts studied include simple sentences, compound subjects and verbs, prepositional phrases, direct/indirect objects, modifiers, appositives, infinitives and infinitive phrases, clauses, participles/participal phrases, different types of sentences, and much more. Nicely well-rounded and easy-to-use diagramming worksheets don't bore children with long lists of sentences to diagram, but challenge other skills as well. Answers included. Please note that Book 1 is currently out of print. ~ Jess

    I'm embarrassed to say that I probably need to complete these punctuation packets myself as a grammar refresher. This age of informal writing, quick emails and text messages has reduced my recall of proper grammar rules to merely hazy memories. This resource contains packets of reproducible activities that review common grammar rules. Eight packets are included: Commas I, Commas II, Capital Letters I, Capital Letters II, End Punctuation, Apostrophes, Quotation Marks, and Colons and Semicolons. Each packet consists of six activities (each page introducing a specific punctuation rule) plus one tic-tac-toe review activity. The packets are self-paced in that the student checks off the worksheets as the packet is completed. There is also a good variety of worksheet activities, many of which are self-checking. For example, you may be asked to find and circle letters that need to be capitalized, and those circled letters should spell out the name of a holiday. 80 pgs. ~ Anh

    This grammar workbook offers straightforward worksheets for students who need extra practice, reinforcement, or just a refresher course. It begins with a short "Check What You Know" section so you can determine the student's current level of understanding or spotlight specific areas he/she needs extra help with. After this, the worksheets are divided into four units - Vocabulary (synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, prefixes and suffixes, contractions, compound words, and idioms), Sentences (types, parts of, compound and complex, run-on, etc.), Grammar and Usage (parts of speech, active and passive voice, commonly confused words, conjunctions, double negatives, etc.), and Capitalization and Punctuation (capitals, end punctuation, commas, quotation marks, and others). Each worksheet follows the rule-example-practice format and targets a single skill so students can master it. At the end of the book, a second "Check What You Know" tests students again. A few "cheat sheets" in the back provide students with lists of language terms, personal pronouns, irregular verbs, and commonly misused words. A complete answer key is also included, and all of the pages are perforated for easy removal. 124 pgs. - Melissa
