5 Awesome collection!
Hi Gayshell! I absolutely love this collection. You have a variety of outstanding resources, from journal articles to web seminars and even book chapters. I can tell how passionate you are about early childcare science and learning more about how to integrating new tools or methods to achieve more academic success. I love the journal article on how to integrate STEM into early childhood education. I am a firm believer that STEM should be incorporated in education as early as possible! Overall, you have a great collection, I will definitely make use of it one day.

5 Great collection!
This collection is a great collection for teachers who are are planning on teaching students on chemical reactions. This collection has a great variety of resources, and I see that there are two SciPacks which are a great resource for teachers to use. I also see that you have a web seminar on how to spot the difference between physical changes and chemical changes, which would be really helpful for when trying to demonstrate this to your students. Overall, I think this is a great collection with great resources.
