I would definitely use this in a science classroom. This would be a great tool for reenforcing a lesson. I think most students would like reading this type of book. This I believe would help students understand the topics more if they are struggling with these topics to began with.

I would give this book a rating of 5. One of my concentration areas is science. I love science. This is a great book to have in the classroom. I believe this book is a great enhancement for students to read after they have studied this subject. Mixtures and compounds can be very confusing to some students. The pages in this book are different colors and also at the back of the book are tables that are very helpful to students. In the book, there are bolded words. The bolded words you really need to pay close attention to. Also, there are pictures and diagrams in this book. This book is also Internet - linked. On each page it gives you the student the internet link and it tells you what task each website has. This would be good book for students in upper elementary school thru college aged students.
