The Interactive Science curriculum for homeschooling is a series of materials you can use to educate your child about science. Spanning from Kindergarten through Grade 8, the program will guide your child through the subject and solidify his or her knowledge.
The final installment of Interactive Science, Grade 8 is designed just as carefully as the rest of the homeschool program. All Interactive Science curricula help your child stay engaged in learning by providing materials that include fun labs and exciting activities.
Interactive Science: Grade 8 is a dynamic program that allows you to tailor your child’s lessons to her or her needs. You can set the pace of your child’s education using this curriculum. Furthermore, by using Interactive Science: Grade 8, you’ll have all the tools you’ll need to ensure each lesson has the right level of challenge for your child and is engaging.

- Interpret and create graphs using data collected during experimentation.
- Explain basic physics concepts, such as speed, motion and force.
- Understand and explain the process of natural selection.
- Explain the relationship between Earth and its solar system.

Please note that Pearson creates educational materials for all types of learners. For that reason, when creating a program, we ensure that the material will be accessible to as many students as possible. As such, we create many ancillary products that fit specific situations and meet a variety of needs. While there are many components to each of our overall educational programs, some of these ancillaries do not meet the needs of homeschoolers, others do not make sense in a homeschool environment and some require an expensive technological infrastructure to deploy. The homeschool product configurations, while selected from a larger program, are complete curriculum bundles designed to engage your children and help them thrive while being mindful of your budget. It is important to note that at times there will be resources mentioned throughout our curriculum material descriptions that are not included in your package. However this will not hinder your child's successful completion of the course. Rather, the exclusion of certain materials will make homeschooling more budget-friendly and will ensure your curriculum meets your individual needs.
