Reviews

The purpose of our reviews is to provide you with the necessary information about each educational resource. One of our primary missions here at Educational Express is to help all educators save valuable time and money. Our reviews are designed to “Express” your way through having to evaluate every resource that you would otherwise come across doing your own online searches.  So not only do we provide excellent educational resources you can use, but we have done a review of these resources to help you understand what the resource is all about and if it is relevant before you visit. It is important to keep in mind that these reviews are based on our  experiences of having explored and used these resources, from simply navigating a webpage to having actually used activities and materials in an educational setting.
