I love this whole series of books. This year I am using this one along with How Science Works for my son's sixth grade science texts. Each concept is presented on a two page layout with demonstrations and experiments that he can do to explore further. Following the classical model, he then writes up lab reports on the following day. These books are great for that kind of schedule.
