Each book contains an array of challenging, hands-on activities and high-interest topics (such as sport and bungee-jumping Barbie dolls!) that will motivate and engage even the most reluctant learner in your classroom and foster an active-learning environment. Most units have a link to general science concepts, making them an ideal cross-curriculum resource.
Students are encouraged to work together and to use technological materials and computer programs such as Excel to complete tasks.
