I love the lesson plans. They are easy to use and the ones I have done have been very engaging. My students have come away with many questions, some of which they were researching themselves while we discussed.

This was my first year, and I loved the lesson plans, particularly in such a difficult year I appreciated finding such good resources that I was able to use without a lot of preparation.

We home educate so I have used the resources for my family and gone deeper through learning more about Rick Hansen. My kids have thoroughly enjoyed it and we have been able to go deeper with other books etc.
