The learning is challenging and thorough but accessible for my lower learners using the MP3s included for reading passages etc. There are lots of activities to choose from, so I can easily pic and choose what will work for my students. I love that all the suggested videos etc are linked so I can just pick up and know what I’m teaching quickly. I own all the science units now and they have made it so easy to teach!”
