EARTH & SPACE SCIENCE-As the title implies, this is an earth science module in which students investigate rocks, soils, and water and the interactions among them. The students observe the earth materials around them and compare different types of soils and rocks. They become aware that soils and rocks vary from place to place in terms of color, texture, and reactions with water. The module includes an introduction to fossils and their formation.

BSCS Science T.R.A.C.S. includes a Teacher's Edition, complete with facsimile pages of the student guide, placed exactly where you need them with the Teaching Strategies.
