Basic Science Mysteries Course Keeps Your Student’s Interest

Paradigm Basic Science Mysteries

We like Paradigm Basic Science Mysteries because it keeps the student’s interest and helps with reading comprehension.

Features and Benefits

  • Each lesson has a motivational story that involves something to be learned in the science lesson.
  • Our sons enjoyed using this course. Customers tell us their sons like it, too.
  • Use this course to teach your child to read for comprehension and to find answers to questions in the activities.
  • Each Paradigm course is formatted in the same manner.
  • If your student does well with one Paradigm course, he will probably like the others, too.
  • Most question occur in the same order as they are found in the text. Each question is phrased from the text which is the old fashioned way that worked.
  • Introduces your student to reading to find the answer with a curriculum designed to do that.
