"We used your curricula last year, and my teachers found the lay out of the lesson plans easy to follow (especially the teachers that don't like to put a lot of time into planning).  The kids enjoyed the variety of fun activities that related in hand-on ways to the educational aspects: THE TAKE APART PARTY WAS A BLAST!. As RGD, I liked Spirit of Adventure, because you made the ordering process very easy and helped advise me based on my church-school's volunteer teaching staff as to what I should order.  You were very
helpful, also I do all the set up for my teachers and it was EASY.
Thanks for a GREAT curriculum!" Hope Colt, the Unitarian Church of Lincoln NE
