Category Description for Basic, Not Boring Subject Books:

The Basic/Not Boring Series features workbooks that review fundamental skills in specific subject areas. Now, the same themed, high-interest worksheets are available in combined, comprehensive volumes. The worksheets in these books are the same exact ones found in the individual middle school workbooks. Almost all the worksheets in the individual books are included in these volumes, with just a couple of worksheets dropped per book. The skills checklists from the original books are also included here, along with skills tests after each section (these big books are divided into sections that correlate to the


Category Description for Basic, Not Boring Series:

"Basic" doesn't have to imply boring! These workbooks contain much more than your standard fill-in-the-blank and matching exercises. Developed by experienced educators, worksheets utilize cartoon characters and unique formats to make learning basic skills fun and to help build higher-level thinking skills. Worksheets are arranged by topic, and there are quite a few packed into each book. For example, Basic 6-8+: Human Body and Health includes worksheets on body parts and processes, cells, tissues, organs, muscles, the five senses, systems (skeletal, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, excretory, reproductive), genetics and heredity, diseases, exercises, nutrition, first aid and fitness! Because of the topical arrangement, you can skip around and use whichever sheets fit your curriculum at the time. Workbooks also contain a cumulative skills pre- or post-test, an answer key, and either a glossary or appendix. We love the variety of topics and activities used for each topic - much better than many other "review" books! Middle school activities can be used to teach new skills or as a review. Elementary activities are best used after a new concept has been taught. Black and white illustrations, 64 pages, and reproducible. See also the Basic/Not Boring Curriculum and Subject books, which are compilations of individual titles and worksheet units.

I already have one of your books on mapping and I really like the activities. They engage the students and teach them so much. Plus, they just make learning fun!

Great Book!
I recommend this book to any middle schooler who is board with Social Studies. This book keeps my 8th grader interested and wants to do more and more. She looks forward to it and can do this on her own. She says it's a fun way to learn.
