Based on national science standards for life, earth, and physical sciences, the 30 weeks of interactive activities focus on Big Idea science concepts and weekly questions to encourage students’ critical thinking. Key science concepts and vocabulary are clearly presented as students move through a variety of interactive, self-correcting activities to explore a weekly question, such as “Is it safe to eat moldy food?” or “What causes hurricanes?” Lessons are highlighted with animation, video, full-color illustrations and photography, and audio for the pronunciation of vocabulary words.
