What buyers are saying:

~What I Love about this resource is the variety of options to place on the traffic light. I also appreciate the differentiation with the biographies. I teach a 1st and 2nd grade multi class, and having varied items to meet their needs its somethings I enjoy.

(Ivelisse G. February 26, 2020)

~Used this for my small Sunday School class of 5. Ages ranged from 1st grade to 6th grade. I liked that it provided different options for the ages. My 1st graders used the pictures and colored them along with reading the poem. My 3rd graders talked and wrote about inventions and used the quote. While I had the 6th grader write some facts.

(Linda A. February 28, 2018)

~I loved how there was a mini bio included in the packet. I liked how blank paper templates were provided for students to summarize in their own words about who Garrett Morgan was. I also liked the photos explaining who he was. This is especially helpful for my EL students.

~I’m not a teacher, rather the parent of a Kindergartener. The resources on this site are practical, affordable, accurate, and fun to do! (On top of the educational aspects) Make this purchase! You will not regret it!
