Here are what some happy teachers are saying about the Tire Impressions Unit Bundle for High School:

These resources are ready to use as is. They are well organized and the images are great. My students found these to be very engaging.            – Samantha C.             November 18, 2021

This was a great way to help students with tire evidence. It’s difficult to find tire treads, so this was a great way to get students a bit of a hands-on experience.               – Allison I.               April 18, 2021

Wonderful bundle. Saved me time, engaged my kids, and they learned so much!               – Mrs Pea             May 26, 2021
