Grade 6 Science Space – Teacher Feedback:

  1. “This resource is great! My students were continually engaged throughout. There was a variety of activities and the readings include great photos and illustrations. I also like how simple and laid out the lesson plans are. I look forward to using the related Escape Room resource at the end of our unit.”
  2. “I purchased this resource because of a previous purchase from this seller. I am equally satisfied with this resource. I used it when we transitioned from online to in-person learning and it was very easy to use. Again, the kids loved the QR codes, readings and activities.”
  3. “Very helpful! I was on a medical leave for several weeks and I was able to leave this unit with my sub and she had everything she needed. Thanks so much!”
  4. “Thank you! Completely laid out my Space unit and made planning a breeze. I hope to see more Grade 6 science resources soon!”
  5. “I used this item both online and in class. Because it comes with both print and digital it was SO easy to swap back and forth as needed and to keep my asynchronous students on pace now that we are back. The full set is on google slides and there are other digital elements like quizzes that make it so easy to use online. The audio files are great as well, my students played them in breakout rooms while they followed along with the slides.
    Now that we are in class, i like that I can pick and choose which items to print and which to continue with digitally. Very thorough and easy to follow (answer keys provided which is great if you aren’t a space expert). This made it so easy to follow lesson by lesson. Well worth the price, it has been very easy to follow.”
