Matter: Its Properties and Its Changes (Elementary Chemistry) Student Journal

Printer Friendly Version

Publisher: New Leaf Press
Author: Tom DeRosa
Carolyn Reeves

List Price: Oversize softcover: $4.99

Ages: 9-11 Years

Reviewed By: Joy Toll


This consumable workbook is a companion to the Matter: Its Properties and Its Changes textbook (please see related review). It contains all the questions asked in the text along with additional material. Lined spaces are provided for the answer to each question. Space is also allotted to complete the recommended activities such as “Dig Deeper” and “What Did You Learn.” The lessons prompt the student to date their work. The “Stumper’s Corner” ends each lesson with space for the student’s questions. The only problem I had with this add-on was a lack of clear instructions for using the 3-D models, included in the back of the book.

This is useful little book essentially functions as a lab report notebook and worksheet set in an easy to use format. Students don’t have to keep flipping back to the text for needed tables because they’ve been recreated on the journal pages. It also introduces the student to the idea of keeping a lab notebook with the basics of what should be included, skills that will prove helpful later on in their science education. This journal isn’t necessary; you could certainly do the lessons without it. However, for a minimal cost, it’s a big help.
