Great Science Adventures (Common Sense Press)

Developed by Dinah Zike, M.Ed and Susan Simpson (created of Learning Language Arts Through Literature)

Great Science Adventures is a hands-on science program that includes activities for ages throughout the elementary years. The benefit to this is that it  can be used with children of different ages and you can being with any book/program you wish. Because there are activities for primary, junior and intermediate students, it is not grade specific. This is an interactive and very cost-effective program!

Each book/program contains 24 lessons so if you are working at the program regularly, you can likely complete two or more books and spend any extra time expanding on the information with other resources or activities.
