Product Description:

In this volume, students examine the earth in 16 chapters, starting with ecosystems and biomes, learning about biotic (living), and abiotic (non-living) factors that affect our ecosystem, such as population growth, energy flow, food, and light, temperature, water and minerals. The last several units focus on individual species and their relations with one another, and environmental problems like pollution.

These softcover texts explore science topics from a Christian perspective and include review questions for assessment. Books are divided by topical chapter, each containing informative text, black-and-white illustrations and photos, and review questions. The text is engagingly written, weaving in stories of scientific discovery and famous scientists, instead of simply offering facts. While the visuals are black-and-white, they are detailed and clearly labeled. Review questions consist of true/false and multiple choice questions, along with a short list of questions students can use for further research, writing assignments, or be extended into projects. Answers to the short answer questions are found in the back along with a glossary and index. This series could form the core of an upper-elementary or middle school science program, or be used as topical supplements to study a topic in more detail. If using for a science program, I would recommend supplementing with more hands-on experiments, or extending the topics provided at the end of the chapter into additional assignments. 160 pgs each. - Jess
