From the Science Weekly website:

Science Weekly is a curriculum supplement that offers an interdisciplinary and inquiry approach to enhance teachers' knowledge and skills in teaching science and literacy. 

Each issue of Science Weekly ascribes to the national science standards. Each topic is written at six reading levels (K–6) in diverse science content that provides the opportunity for students to exercise their curiosity about the world around them. 

The Queen's Assessment:
We received a Composting edition of Science Weekly for this review. We received Levels Pre-A through Level E which correlates to Grades K-6. The princess completed lessons Pre-A and A. The prince did Levels B and C. 

Each unit had age-appropriate lessons in math, vocabulary, language arts and science. The labs in the units for older children was more involved than those in the lower units. The teaching notes made it easy to give students background information and work through the lessons. 

The prince and princess really enjoyed this review. They spent several days talking about what could go in the compost and what could not. 

I liked that everything was together. The materials to be read were not far from the materials on which to be written. (That can sometimes be a problem around here.) In addition to the materials presented, there were internet links for further study.

We enjoyed this lesson. You can take a peek at a sample and see what you think.

    Your Majesty,

    Visiting from the Crew. We did THE FLU from Science Weekly and I was impressed by how the kids enjoyed it and how much they remembered. We did ours a bit differently but I like that we had the opportunity to look at all the levels.

I'm around kids and critters all day. I'd appreciate some adult human conversation. Please leave a comment.
