Thorough, engaging and easy to follow

I love Amy's Science Units. I used them all in 2019.I love how each lesson is easy to follow with only 5-6 steps. All the links are included so it is easy to access, and all the relevant resources are included, which means that I can print off everything at the start of the term and its done.
I love the experiments in this one, and the assessment was really fantastic, which tested the application of what the kids did during the experiments.
I will be using this unit again in 2020.
Thanks Amy!
