What educators are saying

This is great to use with a sub! The directions are easy to follow and students are able to work on a variety of activities.
Partner groups completed some of the pages in this fun packet...then they used the information to create and videotape a weather report! They LOVED it!


Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett is an imaginative story that can be read any time of year, but is a great book to read during a weather unit.
