Does hypnosis really work? Can we grow plants on the moon? Can we bring back species that were once extinct? Covering five different topic areas – Nature and the Environment, Humans and Society, Space and Exploration, Health and Medicine, and The Future Now – this book answers all these questions and more. As they learn about a variety of scientific topics, students complete activities to extend their skills in reading, listening, vocabulary, grammar, and discussion. A list of the key vocabulary is given at the end of the student book while extra quizzes are provided in the teacher’s manual.
