What teachers like you are saying…

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Timothy said, “My son chose to study the brain as enrich while remote learning. He loved this packet and still refers to it when discussing how the brain works!!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Staci said, “I used this to teach about the nervous system. It was the 3rd one I brought because the other ones were lacking. This resource is perfect for 2-4th grades and unlike other resources, the information is there too.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Dawn B. said, “My students loved to step away from the text and have more hands-on activities (I used this prior to DL). I was also able to incorporate pieces into my DL learning this year. I know it was blocked for the younger grades, but sometimes the high school kiddos need this as well.”
