624 pages. This is a nonconsumable text so ordering a used copy is a great idea to save money. Siblings can easily share the same book. When ordering this book new or used, make sure you order the FIFTH EDITION. All that is needed is the FIFTH EDITION student textbook.

Colored Pencils (Prismacolor 24 Color Pencil Set recommended)

Art and science assignments often call for colored pencils. Students will need at least the colors of the rainbow, black, gray, and white. Any brand or pack of colored pencils will do. Pencil texture, number of colors, and price make the Prismacolor set of pencils our favorite.
