Customer Feedback:

"A-MAZ-ING! I cannot wait to try this! Very comprehensive and I love all of the elements from creating your own pizza store with logos and marketing it. My son (who is in another Grade 5 class) asked if he could join my class when we do this lesson. That's how good it is."

"Fun unit with ample opportunities for creativity and flexibility. It is a great way to tape into those "collaborative/group" skills that all students benefit from using and a the idea of a "real world problem" is truly interesting."
