Issues and Earth Science

by University of California at Berkeley Lawrence Hall of Science

Issues and Earth Science is a different kind of science program which uses several kinds of activities to teach science. The activities in this book were tested by hundreds of students and their teachers, and then modified on the basis of their feedback. This book is part of SEPUP's middle school science course sequence.
