A must read for middle school science
As soon as I saw this book I changed the curriculum for my 6th grade science class and added this book. It meets the science standards much better than our previous book and it was free. The students loved using an iBook. We projected the book onto the board and they shared some iPads. The interactive parts of this book were incredible, fun and easy to use. All my students are ELL and they were able to grasp the information. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this book and our experience using it.
