⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ North Texas Kids Outside said, "This resource gave me hours of my life back and saved me last year, during the hardest year ever! I was able to use them as sub plans when I had to be in a team lead meeting on multiple occasions and the sub appreciated having everything ready to go. I used them so my F2F and students on Zoom were doing the same tasks. And I used them for small group with students who just needed a bit of review before state testing. I thank you so much for making this easy for me to prep! What's even better, is I knew students would be doing activities which aligned with our TEKS whether they were at home or in class."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Caitlin M. said, "These fit the 5th grade science TEKS so well! We use them almost weekly!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Jane M. said, "I purchased one independent of the bundle to see how I'd like it ! I really love it. Obviously, I was so satisfied with the one I bought that I'm buying the bundle (saves a LOT of money).
