Life Science (100+ Series)
102 pages of reproducible worksheets designed to supplement your study of life science, regardless of the curriculum. These include worksheets on labeling the parts of a flower and plant, determining which plants are monocots and dicots, labeling the parts of a leaf cross-section and tree trunk cross-section, labeling the life cycle of certain plants, labeling and distinguishing between different circulatory systems, classifying vertebrates, learning about different types of teeth and locating these in different species, labeling frog and fish anatomy, learning life cycles of different animals and insects, classifying worms, making an energy pyramid, and so forth. Regardless of what aspect of life science you're studying, there is more than likely a worksheet here to accompany it. Answer key included. ~ Jess
Life Science for grades 5 to 8 is designed to aid in the review and practice of life science topics. Life Science covers topics such as classifying animals, plant and animal structures, life cycles, biomes, and energy transfer. The book includes realistic diagrams and engaging activities to support practice in all areas of life science.
The 100+ Series science books span grades 5 to 12. The activities in each book reinforce essential science skill practice in the areas of life science, physical science, and Earth science. The books include engaging, grade-appropriate activities and clear thumbnail answer keys. Each book has 128 pages and 100 pages (or more) of reproducible content to help students review and reinforce essential skills in individual science topics. The series is aligned to current science standards.
These books are an excellent resource for teachers who need ideas for educational and worthwhile science experiments. Each book is broken down into several sub-sections to make learning more organized. For example, the Physical Science book gives in-depth science background for 3 different content areas - physics, chemistry, and technology. This information provides teachers with the data children should learn while doing the featured experiments. Dozens of experiments are then provided. The books first tell the purpose of each experiment and the materials needed. Then they give reproducible step-by-step instructions for completing the experiments, and charts to fill in the results. Review questions are also given to test students’ understanding. The experiments can be adapted to several grade levels and learning styles. The materials (including equipment and supplies) required for each experiment are appropriate for a small group or an individual. Most of the items you will need to complete the experiments are inexpensive and easy to locate. Included in these books are practical tips for planning both guided and inquiry-based experiments. Web sites are recommended throughout the book to aid teachers with explanations, and literature selections with annotated bibliographies are also suggested for the student to read. With this resource, students are engaging in science through print, media, and scientific investigations, which helps them to understand the world of science. ~ Rachel
