The consumable, interactive Student Worktext is the center of instruction. Overarching, weekly chapters are broken down into individual daily lessons, and include 3-6 lessons with inquiry labs, and an end-of-chapter study guide, review, and assessment section; a "science matters" feature at the very end looks at the application of science to real-world issues. Chapters cover the nature of science, solving problems, objects, matter, motion, the earth, the sky, living things, nonliving things, plants, animals, and more.
Chapters begin with a "big question" that frames the lessons to follow, and an example with prediction question. Lessons include a brief background check with highlighted and defined terms; a longer lesson with integrated questions; lesson questions that link back to the big question; "lab zone" hands-on questions; and "got it?" questions that provide an opportunity to prove that the main point has been learned, or for students to raise where they're still confused. A wide variety of questions pop up throughout, including "do the math," "what do you know?," "apply it!" and other forms of assessment, practice, and review.
