Integrated Science for Jamaica 3rd Edition Grade 7 Student's Book
This popular and established course has been completely revised and updated in this third edition. The three books have been written to match the aims and subject matter of the Jamaica National Curriculum at Grades 7 to 9. The books bring together the essential skills used in the study of science: observation, reporting, organisation of information, prediction, experimentation.
The books follow the six themes of the curriculum. Included within each unit are:
● simple practical experiments
● a variety of classroom activities
● review questions
The Grade 7 Student’s Book is accompanied by an Interactive CD-ROM which contains material for all six of the curriculum themes. Animations and videos bring diagrams to life and present information in a new and stimulating format. Students can then test their knowledge by attempting a variety of interactive activities and word games. A markbook and feedback for every question enhance the learning experience.
A Workbook accompanies each level of the course, offering further practice in the form of multiple choice questions, structured questions and word games.
