Other Buyers Have Said:

“This is an amazing packet. It is hands on and the best example I have found of changes to the earth. The kids LOVED the hard boiled egg experiment. If you are studying earthquakes, volcanoes and erosion this is a must!” (Thank you, Julia R.!)

“Love these! I love how you have great experiments, passages and writing prompts for science. These resources make my job easier. We did a few experiments yesterday from this packet on weathering. My kids were so sad when science was over and we had to start another subject.” (Thank you, Shannon C.!)

"We used this together with a YouTube movie to illustrate the real-world look of these phenomena, and it worked out perfectly. Very happy." (Thank you!)
