There is a lot of great stuff in this packet. I mainly used the experiments for now, but I will go back and use some of the rest. I wish the writing pages started with a capital letter though. I want to use those, but I would have to white out the beginnings. We're focusing on making sure we have capitals at the beginning of words and ending punctuation.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I have purchased 2 units to teach ocean life and have been disappointed. Before I spend another dime, I need to know if there is already info on the fish you list. I don't want to have to go and research each one. Is it appropriate for beginning of the year 2nd graders. Thanks so much for taking time to answer my questions.
This pack includes 8 facts for each of the animals listed in the description. Based on the standards where I teach, this pack is applicable K-2 depending on support provided to students. So, I believe it would be appropriate for beginning of the year 2nd graders. Let me know if you have any other questions!
