Category Description for Investigate the Possibilities:

This elementary science program uses an extremely hands-on and interesting approach for students in grades 3-6 to get a thorough understanding of the physical and chemical laws at work in Gods Creation. The series incorporates creation apologetics and mini Bible lessons in with science concepts to help students understand how science works according to Gods plan and His word.

The multi-step, systematic approach employed by this series has 6 steps engage, investigate, explain, apply, expand, and assess. Each lesson uses the 6 steps to engage students from beginning to end. Think About This is the engage step of the lesson and presents the concept to be taught. The information is presented in small amounts so that the page isnt visually overwhelming to students, and it is written in age-appropriate language without being watered down. The investigate portion includes 3 sections The Investigative Problem, Gather These Materials, and Procedure & Observations. These sections work together to tell students what to look for, what materials they will need, and instructions for the activity and what and how to observe. The Science Stuff is the explain step that tells what happened in the investigation using a scientific explanation. Making Connections is the apply step which tells how the science knowledge is related to other situations and ideas. The expand step is found in Dig Deeper which provides an opportunity for students to expand what they have learned by doing another project. There may be 3 or 4 choices for these projects. Students in 3rd and 4th grade should do at least one project per lesson for a total of 20 projects per semester. Students in 5th and 6th should complete at least 25 projects per semester. The last step is the assess step which is

This is the fourth book in the Investigate the Possibilities series from MasterBooks And again the authors have done a wonderful job in presenting the world of geology with terminology geared for grades 3 to 6 To discover the geology of our planets with my kids was something that I was interested in but I didn�t know where to start Most books on the subject were geared for older students like high school or college But now I have the perfect tool to explore learn and discover more about the EarthThis book is very colorful and packed with interesting pictures graphs and fun activities to put in practice what you have just read Throughout the book you will learn about earthquakes volcanoes crystals minerals rocks caves sinkholes geysers glaciers and more Each chapter is set up as though the kid will do an investigation After all science is about experiments and discovering so it makes sense to see it has though we are investigators Before we get to the lesson in itself you will have to think about a situation observe experience and write your results When you are done with this part you get an explanation that is concise and clear for everyone (even mom!) You can also make connections with the lessons with what we already know dig deeper on the subject and test your knowledge after the chapter The text book is filled with interesting experiments and fun learningThe Teacher�s Guide and Student Journal is now bound into the same book I have mixed feelings about this I personally liked the idea of having separate books before The Teacher�s Guide contains a small image of each page of the text book with extra information that is useful for the teacher (ie the parent in case of homeschool) Also included you will have the answers to the questions asked in the What Did You Learn? section Two options could be done for this section you can ask the child to write down his/hers answers in a notebook or you can proceed in a questions and answers period Having more guidance and information in the Teacher�s Guide is always useful when the subject in hand is not something you know wellOn the other hand the Student Journal is an attractive way to take notes and explain your experiments while you do them You have a section for the procedure and observations and area dedicated to the Dig Deeper and a place to answer the questions in the What Did You Learn? You couldn�t ask for a better way to keep track of what you have done and your answers It is my understanding that you can take out the journaling pages and make copies To make this convenient these pages are perforated in advance for you I like this idea very much to be honest since I have four kids in my own house Having the ability of making copies without having to buy the same book four times is a major blessingIn the end learning about the structure of the Earth will be fun for everyone This specific book can be adapted for younger children even though it is suggested for grades 3-6 It can even be used for children in grades 7 & 8 is needed It is a versatile science book for the whole family!
