Teacher Feedback

  1. “This unit was great!  So easy and ready to use. I needed to use a few as sub plans unexpectedly and I very easily added the slides to google classroom including MP3s and the answer key for a very easy Science lessons with no materials for the sub.  The labs and activities were easy to follow and needed basic items and the videos were age-appropriate and helpful too. This was super helpful and included everything I needed. I love that the whole thing is available print and digital and with mp3s – made it so easy to differentiate.”
  2. “I bought this to supplement some of my older Electricity units. The activities were engaging and students really enjoyed the unit.”
  3. “I find Electricity one of the more challenging units to teach and this lays it all out for me in such a perfect way!”
