About the Book

Teach me about Science is a comprehensive thematic unit. Its many reproducible pages are filled with a wide variety of ideas, games, and activities designed for use with children ranging from ages 6 to 12.
The strength of this book lies in its balanced approach, which involves young learners in every aspect of the communicative process (speaking, reading, writing, listening, and drawing). In this way skills and knowledge grow quickly as children are stimulated by involvement and interest in the topic at hand. Moreover, not only are academic skills improved upon but so are social skills. A development which can no longer be neglected let alone taken for granted in today's ever-communicative world. Children must learn to work cooperatively in order to be successful in modern society; and parents and teachers must do their best at including social objectives as well as academic in their child's education.

    This thematic unit contains:
  • Work sheets: basic summary of theme
  • Trading cards: fun cards to synthesize learning and stimulate group activities
  • Drawing guides: confidence-building techniques to enhance observation, motor, and creative skills
  • Internet scavenger hunt: activities that challenge children to use and become more familiar with computers as a research mechanism
  • Writing ideas: suggestions for writing activities
