Assessment for end of the unit
I just purchased your unit on Tall Tales. You have many great ideas. Before I leave feedback, I wanted to let you know of a typo on the examples of hyperbole worksheet. You have "Faster than the SEED of light instead of SPEED of light. I would appreciate it if you could let me know when you have uploaded a corrected version.
Thanks so much!
I am so sorry, but I can't fix this! My computer crashed and I recently had to get a new one. I lost all the files that I had created from last school year. This was one of them. I do apologize but all I have is the PDF. As you know I can't edit a PDF. I am sorry. I wish I had caught that mistake sooner.
