Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much more time consuming than suggested While the content in this kit is well prepared and well aligned to student needs, the beads and connectors utilized in the first 2 activities are difficult and actually painful for the students to use, making the estimated 45 min. for each activity is grossly underestimated, particularly for struggling or lower level students.
