⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Erica M. says, "My students were engaged with this resource and enjoyed reading about the body systems. The graphic organizers were perfect for my English learners to write their notes about the structure and function of the body system. Excellent resources that did not take much time to prepare and could easily be adapted to any class."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Shananigans in School says, "My students are loving this unit. It is very fun and comprehensive and takes the guess work out of teaching. I love that the reading is short and questions are scaffolds. The diagrams with labels and activities are fun for all. It really works well in my special education classroom."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Laura C says, "This resource was extremely helpful in covering the content through Distance Learning. Not only was it visually appealing for our students, the wording and difficulty level was appropriate for my second graders. We have been learning about the human body for the past several weeks. This resource helped us tie all together in delivering the information in a perfect way!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Vivian Soo says, "Thanks YOU! Wonderful collection- I am using this to review before state science testing and putting this in our interactive science notebooks. There are important vocab highlighted and not overwhelming for ELL."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kara P. says, "Perfect for learning the body systems while also working on key reading strategies (looking for evidence in text). LOVE them!"
