Teachers Who Have Used This Product Have Said:

"I used this product with my 8th grade low science class. They have a very difficult time differentiating between speed, velocity, acceleration, and the various units. This was a thoroughly engaging activity that helped them understand concepts while throwing in some neat facts along the way. I highly recommend." - Tanya G.

"This was a great break from our science book! The kids loved it!" - Kristina D.

"Great STARR review resources!" - Courtney E.

"Nice and simple to use. Thanks." - Leena V.
