Ms Kate's Psychology and World History Materials

Dear fellow teachers around the world, I have produced a variety of materials for my psychology, sociology, and world history classes. Most of them are designed to promote critical thinking but still very entertaining as they either have some role-play features or interactive activities involved. Feel free to contact me if you have any inquiries :)
