Science A Closer Look- 4th Grade Intro


We are using the textbook Science A Closer Look by Macmillan/McGraw-Hill this year for science.

On they have a few resources to go along with the book. They have an e-journal with resource links, vocab games, a short video summary and an animated quiz for each lesson.

We are going to keep a Notebook/Binder of all the materials we use. I hope to post what we use for each lesson with links to the materials and worksheets we use.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
