This was a perfect end to my unit. The students enjoyed the reading comprehension passages. They found them interesting.
Lots of content. Well done. Thanks!
This was a great resource to combine literacy and science instruction.
Our science textbook doesn't align particularly well with our curriculum, and this fills in the gaps beautifully. I've never been less than thrilled with CCP products, and this is no exception. Don't know what I'd have done this year without your excellent resources!
Used for sub work, thanks!
This was great!
"This has been perfect for my special education students. The reading and comprehension questions were great. Thanks!
Excellent for a sub day and a great addition to the standard lesson. Thank you!
Good for a basic understanding of gravity.
Very informative! Awesome!
I had to have a sub for a few days. This ended up being the perfect things to leave for science. Very well done materials and super easy to use. Thanks
I used portions of this to improve upon my already existing unit. Great resource.
Great student friendly reading, with questions to check for student understanding.
Fantastic for tiering reading in my inclusive 7th grade classroom. The set-up of prior knowledge recall, easily accessible reading passages and great lower level questions to check for concept understanding are great. The kids enjoy reading these passages aloud because everyone can do it and class participation is frenzied when we answer the questions because ALL of my students know the answers!!
I enjoy this resource very much. I use it as homework for my students and they enjoy reading about the universe. The students come to school excited to share with me the information from their homework. Excellent product, thank you.
