"Very informative, kids will learn much when reading, also very creative activities. Thanks!"

""This was absolutely PERFECT for Memorial Day during distance learning. It made my life so easy! HIGHLY recommend this product! I will definitely be using this for years to come."

"This was perfect for third graders and even higher. The text was not too difficult, but was engaging and we had great class discussions with this packet as a guide. I especially loved that the reflection pages encouraged them to reread and highlight the important details. The students asked lots of questions and wanted to learn more. Also, it's May, and keeping kids interested is a challenge!"
