Here’s what other teachers like you said★:I have several resources from this seller, and this unit is on par with the others in how well they are laid out, the creativity of the material, and how engaged my students are with completing the lessons. Thank you!” –Katrina D
I enjoyed the ease of using some of the units, but not having to follow day by day exactly. My students really enjoyed the group work and getting to move around the classroom for some of the station work. It kept them engaged and guessing as to what we would do next.” –Rachel H
