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 2008:

At long last, there is a Spectrum series for science! Each of these full-color workbooks includes short lessons in life science, earth and space science, and physical science. Additional chapters also investigate science as inquiry, science and technology, science in society, and scientific discoveries throughout history. Grades 3-5 have seven lessons in these areas, while Grades 6-8 have nine. Lessons are usually two pages long, with a page of text on the left-hand page, and a page of questions on the right-hand page. 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. - Jess

I need science that keeps their interest and doesn't get too specific. Worksheet formats are ideal.

I have enjoyed using Spectrum Spelling, as it teaches my daughter to spell, and is very affordable. I am not a science person, and hope that Spectrum Science will make Science easy to complete at our house,
