Here’s what teachers have been saying:
“I used this resource with grades 7-12 in different capacities with excellent results. My 7th and 8th graders particularly liked the interactive calendar. I liked that I could use it as a quick check of kids’ understanding as a pre- and post-test activity. This is material that Catholic school teachers review year after year, and now everything is available in one handy download. Thanks, Greg!”
