Science Up Close

Harcourt's Science Up Close is a collection of mini lessons that you can use on your Smartboard or Interactive Whiteboard to help your students understand science concepts. The activities are made to accompany the Harcourt Science texts, but even if you don't use the Harcourt texts, you will find activities that you can use with your science lessons. Each lesson has clear audio and images, animations, or video clips to demonstrate and explain each concept. Many lessons are also interactive and will encourage your students to explore the content.

Here are some examples of the activities found in Harcourt's Science Up Close. Make sure you check all the grades for activities that may relate to your classroom content:
