- "Comprehensive resources like these are lifesavers, especially for teachers of split grades. This was my first year teaching Grade 6 and this resource was my foundation for social studies. The activities and inquiries are well planned, meaningful, and up to date. Thank you for the many, many hours of work that went into creating this."
- "It can be challenging to find interactive and student accessible resources for addressing the Ontario Social Studies curriculum. This seller has become my go-to resources. I recently got switched from a 4/5 to a Grade 8 and immediately picked up their History and Geography units."
- "An excellent resource and very thorough! It is my first year teaching social studies and this is an amazing help! Thank you for taking the time to put together these wonderful and engaging activities."
- "This resource covers all of the expectations and has engaging activities for the students. What I love is that what I have noticed so far is that all of the resources are included or easily access (ie. links are provided for videos). That means I do not need to go scrounging around to fill in gaps or use a textbook. With a little work, these resources are very easy to adapt for online learning, which is pretty much a necessity now. Overall, I find this resource to be quite invaluable and it has definitely made life easier for me by as I do not need to spend hours planning, figuring out how to teach the lessons, and looking all over for appropriate resources for my students. Thank you!"
