What educators are saying

This was a great learning supplement for our weather unit. It kept the students engaged and they really enjoyed these activities.
This was SUCH big help! It has everything you could need to teach a successful unit and the worksheets can be easily adapted for your own students' needs. I loved this!


This " Natural Disaster and Extreme Weather Activity Packet and Worksheets " has 55 pages - no prep required - so the packet is great as printable worksheets for a severe weather unit or extra work or sub plans or to enhance a literacy or math unit.

Many of these activities are options for kids at all levels between Grades 2 and 5. Please note that not all activities in this packet will meet your class' particular levels, but there should be enough variation in the resources from your high flyers to those that are more challenged.
