Teacher Feedback

  1. "I love these units! What a great value. It matches Ontario Curriculum expectations and even has pages for IEP/ESL students. Wonderful textbook alternative and easy to use with my interactive whiteboard."
  2. "I love, love, love this! Its so thorough and has made teaching both Social and Science so easy. I'm using this in Saskatchewan and it still fits in with large parts of our curriculum."
  3. "Amazing resource. Teaching a split grade was challenging enough, but never having taught Geography was a little overwhelming. Then I found this resource and it made my year! Easy to follow instructions for me and the students. Works well with google classroom. Students were engaged and participated well in class discussion."
  4. "Thank you, thank you! This is an OUTSTANDING resource! I have used both units thoroughly this term, and can honestly say this unit is a game-changer! The lessons are well thought out, easy to follow, relevant, interesting, differentiated, and most of all they reach the students and teach the curriculum perfectly! I did not need to supplement this resource at all and was able to deliver a thorough intermediate geography program last term. All of the lessons are very meaningful and current. I'm so happy I purchased this! The PDF files shared in Google are wonderful as I am teaching using the Google Classroom and do not print anything for my students. This makes it very easy to post the notes for each lesson as we work through the unit."
  5. "Absolutely love this resource! My students hate using textbooks and I am not a fan of teaching from the textbook. The activities were great and when needed I was able to leave them for my 7s or 8s as I taught the other grade. Highly recommend this resource to anyone teaching Grade 7 and 8."
  6. "So helpful. This is the best resource I have purchased on this site."
  7. "This has been a lifesaver in my Grade 7/8 Geography classroom. It's easy to use, aligns with the curriculum/textbook, and engaging for students. I use this resource all the time and can't imagine teaching without it. Thank you!!"
