Support your child's expanding science skills. Among this level's learning targets are understanding force, identifying the movements of the Sun and planets, recognizing minerals, and learning about the development of plants and animals.
Why is it special?
*Fact box clearly tells the child what he or she will will be practicing on each page; examples are also included, if appropriate.
*Steps within a topic or concept are carried over pages so that children are given plenty of practice to build confidence before moving on to the next step.
*Includes exercises, activities, and experiments in the main areas of science-forces and motion, properties and change in materials, Earth science, life science, and growth of living organisms
Other key features:
* "Parents' notes" explain what children need to know at each age, what's being covered in the curriculum, and teaching methods so parents can support their children.
* Developed in consultation with leading educational experts to support curriculum learning.
Sharpens science skills with extra practice. Children will become familiar with and understand speed, force, mass and volume, energy, the solar system, land and sea features, anatomy, and plant reproduction.
