    My students absolutely loved this resource! I could see it being used in many different ways – fast finisher activity, warm ups, and more! We did it as an around-the-room.

  2. Jennifer K. (verified owner)

    This is great work to combine with some computer learning. These kids are on computers all day so I like this as a computer learning activiy but not on a computer!!!! They loved it! Kept them working quietly!

  3. Destini V (verified owner)

    These are challenging and engaging enough to keep my 8th grade computer class kiddos busy! I love the different themes and enjoy having these around as a computer related offline assignment to differentiate my class!

  4. Katie M. (verified owner)

    Great for tech days when students forget their Chromebooks or we need a day offline in the traditional sense. The students think these are really fun!!

  5. Emily P. (verified owner)

    Even my 6th graders who don’t like anything love when they get to do these. Great for early finishers or for when our internet is down. I’ve laminated several copies of each and we use dry erase markers to complete them since I have 200 students every day. Saves on paper!
