I am homeschooling my child 3rd and 4th grade in one year. I feel fortunate to have found the ScienceSaurus - A Student Handbook because it covers everything we need to meet NY State 3rd, 4th, and the majority of 5 grade Science requirements (it lacks the 5th grade Nutrition requirement but that can be covered in your Health Textbook).
I almost feel as if I have wasted my money by purchasing other Science textbooks because the material in this book makes it so much easier to understand and love Science.

I had a hard time finding a good description of the material covered in the book so here is what is listed in the Table of Contents for each chapter:
Doing Science - Scientific Investigation, Working Safely, Using Science Tools and Equipment, Using Tables and Graphs
Life Science - Characteristics of Living Things, Animal and Plant Behavior, Cells, Tissues, Organs, and Systems, Human Body Systems, Ecology, Classifying Organisms
Earth Science - Earth's Structure, Earth's Changing Surface, Water on Earth, Weather and Climate, Earth and Its Moon, The Solar System and Beyond
Physical Science- Matter, Changes in Matter, Forces and Motion, Energy, Heat, Electricity and Magnetism, Light and Sound
Natural Resources and the Environment - Natural Resources, Pollution, Conserving Resources
Science, Technology, and Society - Science and Technology, Science and Society
Almanac - Numbers in Science, Solving Math Problems in Science, Study Skills, Test-Taking Skills, Maps, Measurement Tables
Yellow Pages - History of Science, Science Time Line, Famous Scientists and Inventors, Science Word Parts, Glossary of Science Terms, Index

I am a 4th grade teacher and my school bought a set for each of the science teachers in my grade level. I use these books more than the text! They are packed with information, but written on a child's level and have great pictures and diagrams.

This is such a great book. Full of wonderful information. I am actually using it as our science curriculum along with some other books. This is a good core book. Colorful pictures. Wonderful drawings. Very well written for a variety of ages.

this is a great book for a 3rd grader to get an overview of many different areas of science from anatomy/physiology to weather and climate. Not too detailed, great pictures, my 8 year old loves to read from it on the drive to school!!

Had to buy this book for a class on teaching science methods. So happy I did, it is a wealth of information in an easy-to-read format. It is divided by types of science and is very easy to use as well. LOVE IT!

Sciencesaurus is a wonderful reference book to have on hand. I keep 10-15 copies in my gifted science classroom. Whenever a question arises (or and argument) I defer to this book. My students love the glossary with easy to understand definitions. Book is arranged by unit; earth, physical, life science. Nice color- coded tabs make access easy.

This book will hopefully replace our old science textbooks that do not cover our state's science requirements for 5th grade precisely. The vocabulary and excess verbiage of the textbooks is a barrier to most of our 5th graders. Now we have the information they need summarized with great graphics.

These make science so easy to understand! If you have a struggling student or child get them these books!! They have great pictures, amazing definitions and they break the book into sections that relate to each other! AMAZING!
