        I looked at quite a few resources before settling on this one! I was happy I did! It really does not require any planning except from going through it. My students really learned what they were expected to. I was also able to use this distance learning. Thank you very much!

        The Small Town STEM Teacher

        I used this as a unit for my Intro to Health Science students prior to enrolling them in a Red Cross CPR class. Great resource to add into the course as it was my first year teaching it, and I was building the course as I went along.

        Compass P.

        Great resource with easy to use format. I did have issues with the QR codes loading in certain formats. But it was fixed

        Haley W.

        Such a great resource for all of my students! Was able to fit each of their needs and was very engaging throughout the entire class period

        Cassie A.

        I bought several little units before finally coming to this one. This unit had lots of information to cover and the slide shows were helpful. Thank you!
