    What Teachers Are Saying About This Grade 8 Science Systems in Action Unit: 

    1. “This is an awesome unit! I have all your Grade 8 science units and this was an excellent addition to the others. Excellent variety of lessons, activities, and assignments. My students found it engaging and meaningful. Thanks!”
    2. “This is my second science unit purchase from this store, and they have both been fantastic! I was weary of spending so much money on a unit the first time (as I wasn’t familiar with this store), but it was worth every penny. These units are a lifesaver and very well put together.”
    3. “This is a fantastic resource! It was an incredible time saver as I was new to teaching intermediate and was a bit overwhelmed with where to start. This resource was very well laid out, clearly followed the curriculum, and included detailed and clear lesson outlines, relevant activities, easy to prepare and execute experiments, and quizzes to check for understanding. It was also very helpful to have the digital and print options for hybrid teaching.”
