S/o favorite science workbooks for 5th and 6th

Recommended Posts

My son enjoys science workbooks. Last year we used spectrum science and didnt finish it, but enjoyed it. The readings were engaging and opened up a lot of rabbit trails.


Other suggestions of high interest science workbooks? We are trying Evan Moor Daily Science but i think i oike it better for the younger grades.

What about the Complete Book of Science? I've not used it, but I really like all of their products that I have used. This series looks promising, too. I've not used their science books, but I've used one of their math books to tutor a student.


We have the CBOS for grades 3-4, and i like it but dont feel it's particularly deep. I am going to try and find previews for the new editon of the 5-6. Thanks!


Btw, CBOS has an updated version called Science Essentials. http://www.amazon.com/Science-Essentials-Grades-5-6/dp/0769660495/ref=dp_ob_title_bk

I have updated the Holt Science thread to include links to the workbooks and readers. I used Evan Moor Daily Science a grade ahead during the summer for my boys to practice non-fiction writing. I might use the Holt interactive readers for comprehension practice.
