TERC eBooks

For years, TERC has developed, researched, and produced a wide range of educational materials in a variety of formats. We are now pleased to be bringing a number of these materials to Apple’s iBooks format. Other ePublication formats are also available here!

Adventures in Ecology is about how animals need and acquire energy. Both the Teacher Guide and Student Guide are available for free and based on the TERC Ecology curriculum.

Investigating Science Outdoors is a supplementary science curriculum, targeted for grades 7-9, that engages students in authentic explorations of a study site—a small piece of land near their school.

Study of Place is a collection of two environmental science modules for middle school (grade 5-8). Antarctic Exploration explores the relationship between the expanse of sea ice and seasonal change, framed by the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 expedition to Antarctica. Oceans Currents Exploration explores the mysterious Gulf Stream, framed by the story of Benjamin Franklin’s quest to explain why English ships carrying mail to the colonies took two weeks longer to cross the Atlantic than merchant ships going the other way.

What’s the Weather? consists of six chapters that are designed to supplement your core science curriculum for grades 3-5. It encourages students to build ideas of science content and process through hands-on and online investigation of the weather in their location.
