Grade 7 Science Interactions in the Environment – Teacher Feedback:

  1. “This is a fantastic resource! It was an incredible time saver as I was new to teaching intermediate and was a bit overwhelmed with where to start. This resource was very well laid out, clearly followed the curriculum, and included detailed and clear lesson outlines, relevant activities and experiments, and quizzes to check for understanding. It was also very helpful to have the digital and print options for hybrid teaching.”
  2. “I loved that this resource was following the Canadian curriculum. Although I’m teaching in BC, it was an extremely helpful and thorough resource. I have a class who are superb note-takers and genuinely loved taking notes, and this one got their heart. I’m still in the midst of using the product, but overall I am satisfied!”
  3. “I am using this resource with a split class. Having the digital resource allows my students to remain on task while working with the gr. 8’s and vice versa. So far it has been a good addition to my science block.”
  4. “As usual great resource! I love that there is no prep needed and easy to post on Google Classroom. Readings are explained in student friendly terms. I would highly recommend this resource.”
