    I have enjoyed showing this to my 6th grade History class. They have enjoyed watching it, learning about Ancient Israel, and it has helped my students who struggle with "typical" learning. Diane Schukar

    This is an amazing video for 6th grade social studies. I showed this to every single one of my classes (2 Regular classes, 1 EC, and 1 AIG). Each class has students who have some sort of disability, but everyone seemed to really enjoy it and learned from it!
