Science Detective® uses topics and skills drawn from national science standards to prepare your child for more advanced science courses and new assessments that measure reasoning, reading comprehension, and writing in science.
First, students read lessons that include a variety of charts, tables, and graphs. Then, they answer critical thinking questions to improve their understanding of the science concepts and develop their reading comprehension, and inferential and deductive thinking skills. Students can't just scan the story for answers -- they must carefully analyze and synthesize the information from the text and charts, tables, and graphs to explain and support their answers.
Includes teacher and student introductions, a chart of topics and key ideas to help select activities, and detailed answers.
