Other Buyers Have Said:

“I absolutely LOVE this product! I am jumping into the NGSS standards on my own, and this really helped me out. I was also hoping to find some independent activities I could leave with a sub during several district trainings, without sacrificing valuable instructional time, and there were SEVERAL things I could leave. Thank you! ” (Thank you, Theresa A.!)

“Finally a plant unit that is just right for my students. I have wasted money on buying things that were too elementary for my 4th graders. This is perfect and it includes experiments! THANK YOU!!! ” (Thank you, Karen J.!)

"I love the units by The Owl Teacher. These last for at least a month in my classroom. They go in depth, yet in an easy and understandable manner my kids can follow. The different activities also give them a fun variety of ways to explore each topic." (Thank you, Emily F.!)

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
