This is the real deal. Often I buy unit studies that are really beautiful but turn out to have no substance. This one is gorgeous and PACKED with great lesson plans. Absolutely fabulous. (Renewable Energy Unit)


The ocean unit was simply AMAZING! Well worth the money. The illustrations are beautiful and there are several QR codes sprinkled throughout the pages with fun extras like educational videos and art tutorials. Will definitely be purchasing from Books and Willows again in the future! (Ocean Curious Trails)


I bought this as a rabbit trail to go with our Charlottes Web study for my 2nd and 6th graders. There was way more included than I expected!
