The Focus On Middle School Geology Set, 3rd edition, helps students in grades 5-8 to build a solid science foundation. This engaging Real Science 4 Kids course focuses on fundamental Geology concepts such as technology in Geology, rocks, minerals, soils, Earth's layers, Earth's dynamics, Earth's spheres, the geosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, the biosphere, and more. This Middle School Geology Curriculum introduces high school level terminology but explains it at a level that gives your children a familiarity with the concepts that they'll build upon later.
This set comes with a hardcover Student Textbook and a softcover Laboratory Workbook that provides an experiment for each chapter. Experiments emphasize investigation, use mostly household items, and are designed around the scientific method. This Geology set also includes a Teacher's Manual with lesson planning tips, background information, and answers to the review questions.
Teach this course's 12 chapters in a thorough and timely manner by setting aside one week for each chapter. Follow the convenient weekly timeline suggested by the publisher:
- Before the week begins, use the printable Lesson Plan to map out your week.
- Day 1: Read a chapter of the Student Textbook with your child or have them read it alone. Take time to discuss the material with them.
- Day 2: Review the details of the chapter's laboratory experiment with your child, and collect the needed materials. Be sure that you and your child have everything you need before starting the experiment.
- Day 3: Have your child perform the laboratory experiment. Be sure that they are recording their data in their Workbook, and encourage them to record exactly what they observe (even if the result is different than they expected).
- Day 4: Have your child take the self-test at the end of the lesson plan.
- Day 5: Take time to review the terms and concepts from the chapter.
