Teachers LOVE the visually appealing slide deck and complementary bulletin board posters that are done for you. Your students will also love being involved in the introductory process with the hands-on notes. Both printable and digital versions are included!


How long does this take? It often takes my 6th-graders one 45-minute class period to go over the content and take notes in a brain-friendly way. After that – we incorporate some fun activities to get familiar with the various elements!
