    Check out the reviews. Many past buyers have told me they love these lessons so much that they end up using them at the end of the year anyways, despite not being sick.

    Many districts (including mine) are requiring a sub folder with activities to do "on-the-fly" in case of an emergency absence. I always had trouble with this. Though it's a great idea, it's often hard to predict when you'll be out and what the class is studying at the time of your absences. That's why I created these sub plans that relate to science, pique student interests, and can be used at nearly any time.

    This package contains 15 "Emergency Sub Plans" to get you through the entire year. These activities are common core aligned for literacy in science. They can be used for health or social studies, as well.
