    My students loved using this resource during the month of October on our fun Friday afternoons! The explore pages are extrememly helpful to hook the students into the activity while provding some background knowledge for those who need it! They enjoyed the challenges and couldn’t wait to try the next one! Great resource! -Melissa M.

  4. Erin C.

    We had a blast with these STEM activities in October and November. Our science curriculum is very dry and boring, and I needed something to spice things up. This resource was great for filling in the gaps and my class is still talking about what we did weeks later. I created a google form for parents requesting the materials and barely had to lift a finger to prepare everything. It was a little tricky navigating the activities with social distancing but with some extra supplies, the kids were all able to make their own without partnering up. I am definitely going to be exploring more STEM resources in your shop! Thank you! -Erin C.

    This resource is the whole package!!! There is so much that you can do with it and it sells at an incredible price for what you get. The lessons are fun, engaging and hands on…a must of middle years. The resource is great for a wide range of grade levels and it made the week before Halloween one of our best weeks of the year so far. Next year I plan to use this resource throughout the whole month of October because there is so much you can do with each of the lessons provided. I’ll definitely be giving my future classes more time to learn and explore with each activity. Thank you for sharing this amazing product, Brooke!!! -Shannon Z.
