A great science unit, however, it would be nice to have more in black and white for those of us who can not afford to print everything in color.
On  July 14, 2013Teacher Tam answered:
I'm glad you liked this one. Here's a link that may help you print it in black and white: http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100110053518AAk8aWF
I use a Mac and a Kodak printer. For some reason, I cannot use Adobe Reader to print in b&w (as far as I can tell), so I open the PDF with Finder and print it in b&w from there.
I hope this helps! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback. I do try to keep in mind that not everyone can print much in color. While most of my games and products involving photos are in color, I also have many items that are in b&w or have only a few pics in color. :)
