    Maya Civilization

    The packet was well written, covered all the important content, plus included a reference page with video selections. The questions were thought provoking and activities were good review. I plan to use Clarendon again!

    Good starting point

    I'm in Ontario so our curriculum expectations are different and my class is grade 4 with a lot of kids who are just learning English, so I'm not able to use a lot of these materials directly. They do, however, provided some good background and a good starting point for me to build my own lessons to suit my kids and hit the Ontario curriculum expectations. There were also some helpful links to other resource material that I was able to use. Some of the questions were thought-provoking and should be good for engaging the kids thinking. The rating system on this site only allowed a 5 star rating. For my purposes, it's not really a 5 star but It's well put together if it's appropriate for your kids.
