While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.

These lessons are perfect for tutors, paraprofessionals, volunteers, and substitutes! They are low prep, too!

This bundle is perfect if you have to teach earth science concepts but weren’t sure how or are just starting out! This bundle saves you time! Take back your weekends without sacrificing quality teaching!
