    New Oxford Modern Science For class 6, schools have a choice to use a combined book for physics, chemistry, and biology or separate books for each of these subjects. For classes 7 and 8, separate books are available for physics, chemistry, and biology. A conscious attempt has been made throughout the series to present scientific concepts in a student-friendly manner. In addition the series encourage students to participate actively in the process of learning, and also develops in them a variety of skills, such as observation and classification.

    Key features
    1. Simple, student-friendly language and self-explanatory illustrations make it easier for students to comprehend scientific concepts.
    2. Fact File and Tech File provide interesting information or technological applications pertaining to specific topics discussed in the books.
    3. Think Quest includes questions designed to hone students’ ability to apply the concepts learnt to new situations.
    4. Keywords and Summary included at the end of every chapter aid recapitulation.
    5. Fun Time provides fun exercises such as word squares and crosswords, which allow students to test their factual knowledge.
    6. Project Ideas seek to develop the skills of investigation and experimentation in students. The projects included range from those that involve construction of models and charts, which could also be used as teaching aids, to those that involve preparing reports and performing simple experiments.
    7. Some of the experiments and models included in this section can also be used as exhibits in science fairs.
    8. Activities, interspersed within each chapter, are designed to actively involve students in the process of learning. Some of the activities included in the books can also be used as demonstrations by the teacher. Most activities included in the books can be performed using easily available materials such as seeds, flowers, common food items, mirrors, balloons, glasses, simple cells, wire, and safe household chemicals. For the convenience of teachers, a consolidated list of materials required for performing the activities is included at the end of each book.
    9. Teacher’s Notes include suggestions on introducing difficult concepts in the classroom. This section also alerts teachers to common misconceptions among students and includes ideas to encourage active participation by students.
    10. Website references are included at the end of every chapter for readers desiring more information on a particular topic.
    11. Practice sheet(s) provided at the end of each book include additional questions for practice.
    12. Skill-based questions, at the end of every chapter, are designed to develop a wide range of skills in students. Each question in this section focuses on a specific skill, which is represented by an icon accompanying the question. Icons used in the books represent the following skills:
    Observation skills
    Classification
    Reference skills
    Looking for patterns
    Communication skills (oral)
    Sequencing
    Communication skills (written)
    The separate books for class 6 (available as an alternative to the combined edition) include the following in addition to the features discussed above:
    13. An introduction to the subject, which offers students a glimpse into the progress of the subject through the ages, its major branches and achievements, and the key personalities associated with it.
    14. Specially designed pages to hone key skills such as scientific drawing, applying concepts learnt in the text to practical situations, and using a microscope, which will be indispensable to students, especially in higher classes.
