The Pearson Prentice Hall "Focus On... Science" textbooks continue to be the science textbook for all middle school students for the 2015-2016 school year. The online textbook is available and includes access to the videos and interactive simulations. The editable worksheet site allows you to download and edit Word doc versions of the workbooks, tests, and more. The codes & information can be accessed here (sfusd.edu login required).
Need a teacher edition of the textbook or copies of the workbooks or teacher guides that go with the PH science textbook? Here's a list of what we have to send you. If you have any extra textbooks, workbooks, or supplements, please let us know and we will redistribute them to teachers who need them.
If you need suggestions for materials for stocking your school's science storage room with materials needed for middle school science, the California Science Teachers Association has put together lists of recommended laboratory inventories for each grade.
