What educators are saying

These were great exercises to address SEL needs for upper elementary students. I used these distance learning but would've been a great in-person resource.
I love the graphics on this one. Very student friendly and easy to use. My students really enjoyed creating the lap book. Will use again next year.

What are teachers saying about these lessons?

"I used this during our spring closure and got tons of positive feedback from parents and kids. They loved having activities that hit them on a physical/emotional level." - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Bethany E.

"I used this product for health class. It was organized really well and required very minimal preplanning to use. I liked how we could complete the worksheets together and then as a review, the students would fill in the parts of the body. They really enjoyed having the option of writing words or drawing pictures to do this." - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Audra R.

"Great engaging activity to help students grasp the importance of being healthy mentally and physically " ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Sean F.
