  1. Lisa Nehring

    My youngest daughter loved this curriculum! It is a fun, engaging Science program that, like all of the Critical Thinking Company products, asks the students to think critically and deductively about the information being presented. This program is a great foundation for upper elementary ages students who want to solidify their scientific understanding before moving on to Jr. High Science. Utilizes National Science Standards and integrates science, reading, writing and graphing. Highly recommended!
