This pack is just great, the photos are high quality & the text is eyecatching for the children. I tried to get some images myself for different rock types & soil samples etc & this was so difficult to find primary age appropriate samples. So, I was delighted to see this pack & was able to use it to cover what I needed to. The children were very excited to use them & this caused a lot if quality discussion to take place.
Thank you, looks like some great activities for my rock mad kid and friends.
What a lovely surprise! It may be only a Mini Pack, but it's got everything you need. The images are crisp and striking and useful, a range of display resources and activities give you plenty to work with, and the activities are fun, differentiated and just what the children need. I especially like the banners and the board game, and the Geologists Handbook is a lovely idea. Great job, Mark and Helen!
