Thorough, engaging and easy to follow

This was the first unit of Mrs Amy's that I purchased and used. I loved how each week, the activities involved different cooperative strategies, which kept my students engaged and moving! They loved this topic. The activities included different each week, so it really mixes things up for the kids. The assessment was easy to follow and the rubric was comprehensive.
I will be using this unit again in 2020 for my Year 5s!
