  1. Samantha,

    My daughter Maggie chose your assignment to go through. Here is her feedback (remember she is only in 4th grade)

    “I did ms.kneers assignment and here’s what I thought about it. In this assignment we had to watch a YouTube video about the planets and our solar system then she provided us with a PDF that had a riddles about the planets. We had to answer them and then use the answer key provided to check our answers.I could totally see my teacher doing this for an individual project one day or for homework. I thought that the YouTube video was very informational and helpful and I learned a lot from it. My only problem with the PDF was that I could not download it therefore I could not type on it. If you did this for your class again I would recommend giving more instructions on how to download or giving them a separate sheet of paper to fill out the riddles. other than that I thought it was really good. It was entertaining and I wasn’t bored. “
