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

Great Secular Middle School Science Book
We love the Holt Middle School Science textbook series. Lots of activities to choose from so you can make it work for your child. Several different level tests, reinforcement activities, quizzes and directed reading worksheets. Also ideas and experiment sheets for labs that are in the book so you can build your own labs if you want to. For middle school and high school, you can put the Holt books with Quality Science Lab kits that come with a manual to give you a complete science with lab course.

My 4th grader is really interested in becoming a vet. All of the vet books are college level and are way too advanced. We read through the sample pages together and went over the review questions at the end of the chapter. The questions were fairly straightforward and the answers could be found in the reading without making lots of leaps or requiring a lot of prior knowledge to answer them. I wanted a secular curriculum.

To teach science to my son next year - it seemed the most comprehensive package available for a middle school student, covering all aspects of life science (including evolution).

Does this program include tests to administer to the student?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this kit not only includes tests but chapter reviews, reteach handouts, quizzes, section reviews, different levels of assessments, critical thinking, experiments, and standard test question reviews.
Are the labs hands on or all online? Does it have a lab kit?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have found that you can purchase a good lab kit with a manual from Quality Science labs that will give you the experiments that you can match up with the chapters in the Holt books for both Middle school and High school.
when do expect this product to be available?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We expected them into the warehouse this week (week of 9/6) but they have not yet arrived.
Please bear with me, I have a few questions: 1. What are the differences in the Parent CD vs the Teacher's Edition? 2. Do they provide different materials? 3. Do the tests/quizzes/etc come on the student resource CD or from the Parent CD or Teacher Edition? 4. Can the student complete this course independently or does it require extensive parent prep time? THANK YOU!!!

Holt Science & Technology Life Science Homeschool Package With Parent Guide CD-ROM
Holt Science & Technology Life Science Homeschool Package With Parent Guide CD-ROM
BEST ANSWER: I love this curriculum. The homeschool parent CD is a guide - it is broken down daily. It gives you additional information about the topics, what pages and assignments for that day and activities you can do with your student. The chapter resources CD has the directed readings, assessments, lab instructions/worksheets and answer keys. My daughter successfully works on this independently. The labs are a little hard to do at home because sometimes equipment is needed that we are unable to obtain because of availability and/or cost. When that happens, she does the SciLinks activities online. The most time consuming part of using this curriculum is printing everything you need for a week. Be prepared to have lots of ink and paper on hand!
I'd like to know if this package includes a consumable workbook?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not. There is a Student Text, a Teacher Edition, and a Chapter Resources CD-ROM.
