Comments to eBook Spectrum Science, Grade 6
Shakanos
If you're a teacher looking for something to supplement your classroom teaching, this Spectrum Science Grade 6 book provides some excellent, in-depth exercises. These are very useful for homework assignments. If you're a parent looking for some at-home science practice/enrichment for your child, I think this is a great tool to use for reinforcement of certain topic areas.

This book is divided into 7 Chapters according to content area strands and benchmarks, with each chapter being clearly labelled. Since there is no 'Look Inside' feature, I'll list the chapters below with the lesson titles:

1- Science as Inquiry
1.1 Rules to Remember (safe/unsafe lab practices)
1.2 Taking a Good Look at the World (experiments)
1.3 On the Rise (a hands-on balloon experiment)

2.2 Energy on the Move (thermodynamics)
2.3 A Shining Example of Clean Energy (solar power)
2.4 On a Roll (inertia)
2.5 Seeing Sparks (static electricity)
2.6 Taking to the Skies (how do birds stay in the air?)
2.7 Swing Time (pendulum; potential energy and kinetic energy)
2.8 Boyle's Perfect Mixtures (Robert Boyle, the Father of Chemistry)
2.9 Acid or Base? (plants, soil, and pH indicator)

3- Life Science
3.1 Communities of Life (cells, the building blocks of life)
3.2 Darwin's Finches (Galapagos Islands; natural selection)
3.3 DNA: A Blueprint for Building Life (gene sequence; genome)
3.4 Blowing in the Wind (spores, fungi, and lichens)
3.5 Round and Round It Goes: The Nitrogen Cycle (bacteria, fertilizers, irrigation)
3.6 Follow That Trail (pheromones)
3.7 Group Living (termites; colonies)
3.8 The Monkey Bread Tree (baobab tree)
3.9 Trouble in Paradise: The Florida Everglades (ecosystems, habitats, manatees)

4- Earth and Space Science
4.1 The Restless Continents (continental drift; tectonic plates, earthquakes, lithosphere, Mid-Atlantic Ridge)
4.2 Carving Out the Grand Canyon (erosion, sedimentation)
4.3 Set in Stone (fossils)
4.4 A Watery Landscape (the Earth deep below the ocean; submarine volcanoes,oceanic trenches)
4.5 Layers of the Sky (the Earth's atmosphere)
4.6 A Sky Full of Lights (aurora borealis; magnetosphere)
4.7 Soaring Through Space (rotation, orbit, precession)
4.8 Shrinking Pluto (how tiny is Pluto?)
4.9 Cosmic Mysteries (do we know all there is to know about the universe?)

5.2 From China to the Moon (rockets)
5.3 The AC/DC Battle: Tesla Versus Edison (electricity)
5.4 A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Sounds (ultrasound)

5.7 Up, Up, and Away! (hot air balloons)
5.8 At the Bottom of the Ocean (submersibles, deep sea exploration)
5.9 Building the Future Atom by Atom (nanotechnology, microchips, nanorobots)

6- Science in Personal and Social Perspectives
6.1 Counting Calories (caloric intake, empty calories)
6.2 Vitamin Health (vitamins, minerals, RDA)
6.3 Standing Up to Earthquakes (earthquake-resistant structures)
6.4 Water: A Resource at Risk (water crises, aquifers, drought)
6.5 What a Waste! (wasting water)
6.6 Ocean View (risks and benefits of living near the ocean)
6.7 The Age of Information (the Internet)
6.8 Healthy Computer Habits (carpal tunnel syndrome, eye strain)
6.9 New Technologies = New Concepts (will new technology change the way we work in the 21st century?)

7.4 Flying Through Time (humans learning to fly)
7.5 The Interesting Life of Henry Cavendish (an eccentric, shy scientist)
7.6 The Wizard of Horticulture (Luther Burbank)
7.7 The Science of Ancient China (inventions of ancient Chinese scientists)
7.8 Discovering the West (Lewis and Clark)
7.9 For the Love of Chimps (Jane Goodall)

Each chapter is divided into 9 lessons, and each lesson is compact so in other words, you don't need a science textbook to complete the exercises. Also, these lessons are cross-curriculum in that they incorporate reading comprehension. The lessons consist of a short but comprehensive text with important vocabulary listed in a sidebar, and the text is followed by a set of questions which are usually a mixture of multiple choice and writing out a response.

Each chapter has a 2-page Chapter Review Test. There is one Mid-Test covering chapters 1-3, and there is a Final Test covering Chapters 1-7. An Answer Key is also provided.

A great resource to have, in or out of the classroom. Easy to use, nicely organized, with interesting science topics to challenge and encourage learners as the lessons are just challenging enough to enrich but not frustrate.

I have successfully homeschooled two children through graduation, so I am familiar with a wide variety of programs. I bought this for my 11 year-old daughter.
She hated it. It is not presented in any logical order, the questions do not always seem to relate to the material presented, and its just boring in general. We kept it and used it half the school year until I could replace it. Her science is now integrated into a unit study program, where the science topics actually relate to other things we are doing.

Kind of a tough book to review. I like Sprectrum (some books more than others). But I have to say, for homeschooling- This book should not be used solely. Each lesson is 1 or 2 pages with some questions. I think a Prentice Hall science book is better (that's what we switched to). This book just doesn't really give enough detail.
Kerahuginn
My daughter has been using this book for over a month now. She had finished her other science program and I wanted another science workbook for her to use for our homeschooling. She likes the lessons. It isn't very complicated, she reads the page, then answers the comprehension questions for the lesson. There are also chapter tests every so often.

This book gets you to think without being too overwhelming. Each lesson is designed w/ having a story to read on one side, and in that same side there is a shaded "answer key", it basically provides what each bold faced words in the story means and also provides other information there as well. And right next to that page is a short list of questions pertaining to the story and that "answer key" I mentioned...so be sure to READ everything first before trying to answer the questions. I like the set up it makes it fun, while being as informitive as it can be. I also want to mention that after each Chapter there is a Review as well. It's been real helpful having this book and I recommend it highly.
Billy Granson
This book provides a wide variety of topics for a general science instruction for my homeschooled sixth grader. It is well written, and well organized. The questions are easy to answer, a good thing for my student who doesn't love to write. I have always been pleased with the Spectrum series, and this book is no
different.
Kulwes
I have found that this is a great resource for my stepson. The lessons are broken down to manageable "bites" so as not to overwhelm with narratives that help both me and him in working on / reviewing the work. Plus, he actually seems to enjoy the challenge each lesson presents to him. A good supplement, especially if you are prepping your child for the next grade.
good book and easy to read
