I used this worksheet when I was absent from school as it was easy for the students to follow and to know what to do.

I like the fact I can look at the resources need to check if I have the equipment first to do the activities. The worksheets are kid friendly, and are appropriate to the level. I would recommend these to Head of Departments who are starting new projects.

I find it helpful that I can download a sample resource prior to purchasing the whole product. I can therefore see if the item would be work with the equipment I have available.

The information was useful to my class of elderly students - some of whom were still in the mindset of crimpelene. The seareach of this paper was extremely helpful and easily understandable. I have also used it for my teenage group.
