    Engagement for ELLs

    This was a great resource to use for an additional reading passage and notes in science. I enjoyed the ideas and used them to create review PowerPoints to cover 5th grade standards in our survival and adaptation unit. Would love a Spanish version!

    Very happy with Animal Adaptations

    This was easy to incorporate into my online class and has proven to be a useful supplement. My grade 4's particularly enjoyed the "make your own animal" task. Will definitely use this again next year!

    Animals Adaptation

    This material was informative and quite simple and easy to understand. When I engaged my students they too understood the content and was able to successfully complete the activities. This is really an excellent document.
