Science Weekly, is a newspaper like paper that is full of science lessons and comes in the mail 15 times a year. Each issue tackles a science topic, and Science Weekly is available for grade levels from Kindergarten (Level Pre-A) through 5th/6th grade (Level E).
We received the Composting issue of Science Weekly, in all 6 levels, with a teaching guide. These made great workbox activities, I was able to put one in each childs workbox, even though they are in 3 different levels and we still were able to work on the same subject-Compost. There are several different activities in each paper and a project (experiment) where you need to gather material together. My kids enjoyed some of the activites and some not so much. It has a very school like feeling to it, which we are not used to because we use more of a living book approach to science. These sheets feel more text book to me. I did like that you could do science on three different levels and still do the same subject as a family and although I don’t feel it would be enough to completely fulfill science, it makes a great workbox activity for an extra or a supplement. It would be great for coops too!
