I used this unit with my 7th grade EL students and they were a hit. At first, they thought the graphics were a little immature for them, but they quickly got over that and had a good time. I like to think my worksheets helped them forget about their adolescent problems and pressures for awhile and just revisit the happy carefree days of their youth.
