How I Use It
17 activities in a drop-down menu. 30-40 minutes in length. All have coordinating worksheets and assessments; Teacher's guides with helpful information including easy set-up. I use this with my 5th Grade Gifted and Talented students unit on the brain. Weather unit is great for 3rd grade and up Weather intern activity is interesting for all grade levels. Kids "work" as surgeons or engineers. Students have the option of looking at real life photos or graphics. The real life photos may be a bit gory for some students.
My Take
Wish that the product did not include ads Students should work individually or in pairs Students will need to use headphones and teacher on-task monitoring should take place COPPA compliant but teachers should send home a letter to parents alerting them to the real life photos of real medical procedures.
