This science book covers Animal Behavior, Arthropods, Amphibians, Echinoderms, Sponges, Birds, Cnidarians, Reptiles, Mammals, Mollusks, Worms and Fishes. It also provides lab activities in every chapter.
The ancient Egyptians were among the first people to study the stars. The study of the moon, stars and other objects in space is called astronomy. Ancient astronomers also studied the movements of the sun and the moon as they appeared to travel across the sky. It seemed to them as though Earth were standing still and the sun and moon were moving. Actually, the sun and moon seem to move across the sky each day mainly because Earth is rotating on its axis.
Ancient astronomers studied the movements of the sun and the moon as they appeared to travel across the sky. It seemed to them as though Earth was standing still and the sun and moon were moving. Actually, the sun and moon seem to move across the sky each day because Earth is rotating on its axis. Earth also moves around the sun. Earth moves through space in two major ways: rotation and revolution.
This is a children's textbook on cells and heredity. It covers cell composition, structure and functions. In addition it explains genetics and heredity. The student is also provided with lab practical and field tests for better understanding.
A majestic oak tree shades you on a sunny day at the park. A lumbering rhinoceros wanders over to look at you at the zoo. After a rain storm, mushroom sprout in the damp woods. What do think an oak tree, a rhinoceros, and a mushroom have in common? You might say that they are all living things. What makes these living things--and all other living things--alike? If you say they are made of cell, you are correct.
This is a science book designed for middle graders. It covers cell and heredity science, technology, lab practical and skills.

Science textbook on chemical interactions.
Earth science is the term for this knowledge about Earth and its place in the universe. Earth scientists use several big ideas to guide their work: the structure of the Earth system, Earth's history, and Earth in the solar system.
How do scientists study something as large as the solar system or as tiny as an atom? One tool they use is a model. Models help scientists picture things that are difficult to see or understand. In this chapter project, you will create a three-dimensional model of a building or a room.
The textbook contains unit lessons on: Exploring Planet Earth, Inside Earth, Earth's Changing Surface, Earth's Waters, Weather and Climate, and Astronomy and includes Reference Section, Skills Handbook, etc.
This textbook contains chapters on Mapping Earth's Surface, Weathering and Soil Formation, Erosion and Deposition, A Trip Through Geologic Time. Interdisciplinary Exploration and Reference Section are additional features.
This textbook is about earth's waters such as oceans, fresh water, water resources etc.
Science textbook about electromagnetism with labs.
The first step in making environmental decisions is to understand how humans interact with the environment. Environmental science is the study of the natural processes that occur in the environment and how humans can affect them. When people make decisions about environmental issues, the information provided by environmental scientists is a starting point. The next step is to decide what to do with the information. But environmental decisions also involve discussions of values, not just facts and figures. Environmental decisions usually require considering many different points of view. Most of these viewpoints fall into one of these three categories: development, preservation, or conservation.
Science textbook, focusing on our environment, for middle school students.
