Real World Science

Age Level: 10–13  Grade Level: 5–8

Everyone experiences the emotional and physical ups and downs of puberty. That's biology. People use different cleaners for various stains and surfaces. That's chemistry. The smartphones that people use, the bridges and tunnels they cross, the cars and planes they travel in; these are all feats of engineering. Through accessible language and powerful photographs, students will discover how science isn't just a topic to study in school, but an integral part of daily life. Also included are easy-to-follow experiments using common items to help students grasp the principles and applications of the science that surrounds them. Features include: Provides students with a deeper understanding of cause and effect; structure and function; the interdependence of science, engineering, and technology; and the influence of engineering, technology, and science on society and the natural world. Supports the Next Generation Science Standards for the physical sciences; life sciences; earth and space sciences; and engineering, technology, and applications of science. Informative sidebars explore related timely topics in-depth. Further Reading sections with current books and informative websites as well as chapter notes provide several resources for additional study.
