1. I wish that I could give this more than 4 stars! It is an incredible resource that is inclusive of multiple intelligences by differentiating instruction and promotes inquiry-based learning opportunities. It includes everything that you need and is well worth the money.

2. This is wonderful! Very well coordinated with an easy to follow structure. Easy to read, great images, and attractive fonts/borders. The expectations are clear and the activities will definitely keep my students engaged! Thanks so much for creating something that my students and I will benefit from. This will certainly save me tons of extra time!!

3. Love the activities and lesson plans. The activities are very hands-on, visual, and allow for guided discovery. Thank you!

4. This resource elevates history to a new level- no longer dry and boring- students love it.
