Holt Science & Technology Life Science Homeschool Package
Category Description for Holt Science and Technology (Gr. 6-12)
These packages are available in two formats - both of which include the student text plus the Chapter Resources CD-ROM and then either a hardcover teacherís edition or a Parent CD-ROM which includes key elements of the teacherís edition in an easier-to-use format.
Written for public schools, includes a few chapters on evolution and reproduction. You'll need to go through all the labs to order some materials. Short, thorough and manageable chapters. Daily lesson plans are included with a lot of optional and enrichment activities my children enjoyed. You'll need to review the lesson plans weekly to see what materials you need and sometimes review the chapters yourself as a refresher. Labs are creative and engaging. More worksheets are included than you'll ever use. We skipped all the worksheets except some enrichments and the tests. We took notes for each chapter together in various styles instead of doing all the worksheets. It's a serious science course which I felt was worth the expense, enjoyable, and rigorous. I used this with my ten and eleven year old and will continue using the series.
