Pearson Learning Interactive Science Grade K Homeschool Bundle

Keep your child's interests in science going strong. With a reading and an inquiry pathway, Interactive Science makes learning science personal and engaging.

The consumable, interactive Student Worktext is the center of instruction. Overarching, weekly chapters are broken down into individual daily lessons, and include 3-6 lessons with inquiry labs, and an end-of-chapter study guide, review, and assessment section; a "science matters" feature at the very end looks at the application of science to real-world issues. Chapters cover the nature of science, solving problems, objects, matter, motion, the earth, the sky, living things, nonliving things, plants, animals, and more.

Chapters begin with a "big question" that frames the lessons to follow, and an example with prediction question. Lessons include a brief background check with highlighted and defined terms; a longer lesson with integrated questions; lesson questions that link back to the big question; "lab zone" hands-on questions; and "got it?" questions that provide an opportunity to prove that the main point has been learned, or for students to raise where they're still confused. A wide variety of questions pop up throughout, including "do the math," "what do you know?," "apply it!" and other forms of assessment, practice, and review.

The Teacher's Edition e-Text provides access to all the materials teachers need, organized by the table of contents. Click to see the student chapters and expand the folder to get to the instructional materials. Objectives, notes on how the nature of inquiry fits into the books' lesson and activities, and preparation guidelines are provided. Lesson information, teaching tips, and answers are presented around the reduced student text pages. A lesson planner provides pacing and notes for the "path of inquiry," though the "digital path" is not included, nor sold for homeschool use by Pearson at this time. This teacher's edition e-Text is not printable.

Homeschoolers, Please Note: The student workbook refers to videos and online components that are part of the "digital path," a student science website. Pearson does not include a student access code for this website and its content with this kit, nor is it sold for homeschool use at this time.

Also, please be aware that this textbook teaches evolution and "billions of years."

I chose this curriculum because lifepac didn't offer science in grade k, and it covered everything I needed him to learn in K. Lessons are straightforward and can be simple or easily added to [we supplemented plants/animals and earth/sky chapters because he really liked them]. Many activities and ideas for hands-on; only enough reading to start a discussion. Content seemed more complete to me than other science materials. Only thing I didn't like was teacher's materials are online only. There's no Christian element, but I'd rather do that myself than have it constantly weaved in and out of every lesson. It's just simple, "exploring my world" science for young kids, and that's what he likes to do.
