    So engaging

    I have a confession. History has to be my least favourite subject to teach....that was until I purchased this unit. My students loved the activities in this unit and were very engaged with the learning. My students were always asking are we doing History today?? The lessons are sequential building on their prior knowledge without going over the same material. Highly recommend this unit to everyone teaching year 2!!
