What educators are saying

This was such a game changer for our science unit. FOSS doesn't give us a lot to work with - this really filled out the unit in a more thorough way. Thanks!
My students loved this- there were so many great extra things I could add in to our rock unit! Thanks!!


This is a fabulously fun science pack all about the 3 types of rock! Your kids can write about rocks, experiment, read about rocks, and even make a rock craft…and more fun! See more details and pictures on my blog, First Grade Blue SKies!
