Rated 2 out of 5 by Sally Science 8 Needs Updating!
After several months into this school year, I am convinced that this science curriculum and dvd lessons desperately need to be updated. The material is 5+ years out of date. Another subject might not be affected so greatly by this time frame, but science needs to be kept current. The "patches" made in the material to try to cover the lack (example: a poem about Pluto no longer being considered a planet...the only discussion made of this issue) but are weak. Had I been aware of this I would have chosen a different science curriculum for this school year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lucyloo Excellent information ~ horrid design for textbook
While the quality of the content is excellent...the softcover books are absurd. The cost the the text would be acceptable, if not excellent EXCEPT for the fact that they will not endure the beatings that they will take from students throwing them into book bags and lockers. These books will have to be replaced within 2, maybe 3 years. Very disappointed with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by coach Outstanding worlview!
I am just beginning to tap into the resources but am impressed by the worldview. I am a history teacher with a love for earth science (reminds me some of geography) teaching earth science for the first time. I am also overwhelmed with all I have to learn. If the students do no more than read the textbook they will be well on their way to beginning an excellent earth science education.
