Simple and Fun Science Simplified

This is Essential Learning Press' revision of their excellent science series Simple and Fun Science. The series was revised to bring them more in line with their other "Simplified" workbooks. Like the original series, each book takes an active approach to learning science, combining fun, hands-on activities with thought-stimulating questions that ask them to apply what they've learned. Topics from all areas of science are still covered in each level (except for Book A, which focuses primarily on life science topics), and the answers are still included at the back of each book. The book size, however, has increased to a standard 8 ½" x 11, the page count has decreased to between 70 and 86 pages, topics covered have been linked to national standards, and the covers have been changed to resemble ELP's other Simplified workbooks. An extensive table of contents at the beginning of each book lists general topics, such as "osmosis" or "earthquakes," with more specific investigation names underneath. The activities vary in length and complexity, with some being easily completed in a short amount of time, and others requiring several days of observation. Each activity includes a list of materials, a step-by-step procedure, black-and-white illustrations, and a series of questions. The questions are excellent, and they range in difficulty from fact-based observational questions to more challenging application-like questions and even opinion questions. All of the answers are found at the back of each workbook, and the workbook pages are reproducible. With a few changes, this is still the well-balanced, hands-on elementary program that the original was. Add a few science library books, and this would make an excellent elementary curriculum! Jess
