Connect students in grades 5–8 with science using General Science: Daily Skill Builders. This 96-page book features two short, reproducible activities per page and includes enough lessons for an entire school year. It provides extra practice with physical, earth, space, and life science skills. Activities allow for differentiated instruction and can be used as warm-ups, homework assignments, and extra practice. The book supports National Science Education Standards.

As part of the Science section of the Awesome Library, R. Jerry Adams and the Evaluation and Development Institute (EDI) present a collection of Internet resources related to the study and teaching of general science. The collection offers links to sites featuring lesson plans, articles, projects, and other environmental education materials. The collection includes materials for elementary, middle, and high school students. A brief description of each site is available.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
