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.

The lessons you create using Interactive Science will progress seamlessly through various Grade levels, helping your child develop a solid knowledge of the subject matter. By the time you complete Grade 8, your child should be able to:

  • 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.
  • Analyze results of an experiment and determine why they occurred.
  • Explain what chemical reactions are and how they work.

You will help your child achieve these and other important goals by using the materials included in Interactive Science: Grade 8. You can get a more detailed look at what is included in this program by visiting the Features and Benefits page.

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.

Program Overview

The Interactive Science Activities workbooks are designed for the home environment, and modified from the lengthy lab manuals used in schools. They are custom designed at-home activities for students and parents to use on their own or with the Interactive Science grade-level bundles.


 The Pearson at Home Interactive Science Activities workbooks provide children with a student-centered approach to scientific discovery. Each hands-on activity presents a child with a challenging question that can be investigated and explored independently or with parent guidance. As part of the directed inquiry process, the child will answer this question by exploring the resources, following the outlined procedures of each activity, collecting data, and drawing conclusions. In some instances, parents might need to help children with certain parts of the activity. Following the directed inquiry, the child will be given an opportunity to expand and demonstrate scientific reasoning by modifying the investigation and designing his or her own experiments to illustrate the concept. Utilizing these activities will encourage every child to think like a scientist and encourage him or her to be inquisitive.


 This curriculum has been modified specifically for homeschool families. At times, there may be references to print or digital components that are not included within the homeschool bundle. This will not hinder your child's successful completion of the course.
