Category Description for The Spectrum Series:

If you're looking for a basic practice workbook, consider this series of educationally solid, quality books. From McGraw-Hill, these books have their roots in basal lines like SRA and Merrill (and other lines combined into the SRA group over the years). Because customers have asked for good, basic, interesting practice books, I've looked at many (including all the different ones those customers have mentioned). These are unquestionably the best - the best value, the most educational in content, the most interesting (even without little characters and graphic "gimmicks"); all in all the most complete, comprehensive and appealing of the lot. These are more like complete worktexts than mere practice books, but at a low cost. Material is secular but wholesome (some of it looks like it could have been culled from earlier textbook lines, before they "modernized") and traditional in format, but varied and involving. All series are written to be primarily self-instructional. The pages are all perforated and answers are included. Below are the


Category Description for Spectrum Science 2015:

The newest edition (2015 copyright) of this series is essentially the same as the previous edition (2008 copyright). The books provide lessons (seven is grades 3-5 and nine in grades 6-8) in each of seven areas (chapters): science as inquiry, physical science, life science, earth and space science, science and technology, science in personal and social perspectives, and the history and nature of science. There are chapter reviews for each chapter and cumulative tests over chapters 1-3 and chapters 1-7. A complete answer key is provided in the back. Lessons provide a one-page essay/article with a second page of exercise questions that include vocabulary, comprehension, and recall. An article sidebar lists vocabulary words, provides related quotes, and supplies short autobiographical information on people mentioned in the articles. 176 pgs, pb

The text reads like short articles on science, and because a wide range of topics are covered, there's something here for everyone - not just students who already love science. Questions are usually a mix of multiple-choice, short-answer, matching, true/false or long answer. Occasionally, an extension activity is also provided, such as researching the topic further, or doing an activity like trying to locate a planet in the night sky. For review and assessment, there are end-of chapter reviews, the multi-chapter tests, and a final test. Answer keys are provided in each one, and because the pages are perforated, you can remove it if you wish. With the mix of scientific information, real-life science applications, stories of scientific discovery, and lots of questions for each, these would be a nice supplement to a more informal science course at the earlier grades, or a very hands-on science course at any grade.

I took this game to our large family Christmas gathering and it was a big hit Because it offers four levels of questions everyone was able to play together and do just as well � from my history buff adult brother down to younger players Although it�s really for older kids through adults my 5-year-old was even able to join in by being on a team with her aunt As long as the answer was Abraham Lincoln or George Washington she usually knew the answer! On some of the harder levels even we adults learned some interesting new facts It�s nice to have a fun game that many ages can play together yet that is not a mindless game Fun!

This board game consists of two rounds of play the first is based on presidential trivia while the players move around the edge of the board and collect votes at the "convention" All of the trivia cards have four different questions of varying difficulty so you can choose which one to ask each child There are some very difficult questions for any adults that may want to play along (I also bought a $3 25 presidential sticker book which did a great job of preparing my youngest daughter for this trivia section)The second round of play moves the players into the center of the board to collect electoral votes based on all kinds of American trivia There is a wealth of information on these trivia cards and with four levels of difficulty there is plenty of new information to keep the kiddies learning for many years to comeWe found the game to be very educational and interesting! I highly recommend it
