Daily Science is designed to help students review science knowledge as well as improve their thinking skills. Books for each grade level (grades 1-8) are designed as supplements rather than primary sources for learning. They assume basic science course content has been or is being covered by some other means. Scope and Sequence charts in the front of each book show detailed topic coverage for each level. General headings for the areas covered are earth science, life science, physical science, environmental science, and science reasoning.
Each book is complete in itself with student pages, teaching information, and answers. Students can work directly from the student pages as long as the spiral-bound book is folded back so students are not looking at the facing answer key. Student pages can also be photocopied or copied by the parent onto a chalk or white board.
The book for first grade covers 25 weeks with two questions per day, three days per week. Books for grades 2 and 3 have two questions/exercises per day for three days per week for 32 weeks. Books for grades 4-8 also have two questions/exercises per day, three days per week, but for 36 weeks. Exercises sometimes require brief answers but more often require lengthier explanations that encourage deeper thinking. I found no significant evolutionary content in the Grade Five book I reviewed.
These books should be useful for parents who want to reinforce previously studied science knowledge. Questions are general enough to be common to almost all science curriculum. If you have put little emphasis on science in the early grades, choose a book a year or two below grade level.
