If you love teaching Science with a hands-on approach, then this Life Science Unit is for you!
Yes, this unit is a collection of my individual units for Life Science. I have some requests from buyers asking for just the food chains unit or plants unit, etc., so I divided it up in my store so they could purchase the units individually. In the description all of the smaller units, it states that if you have purchased my Life Science unit not to purchase them to avoid duplicate purchases. You could contact TpT to see if they will refund your duplicate purchases.
The most common cause of this error is mistakenly opening and printing from "preview" in Adobe. Here's what typically works for most customers:
This is easy to fix, so no worries! If you are a Mac user, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader X. If doing that doesn't work, try these options: - If you're a Mac user, switch browsers (i.e. if you're currently opening in Firefox, try opening in Internet Explorer or Safari) - Make sure you check Adobe under "open with" to verify that that Adobe is the program you're using to open the document and not "preview" - Try opening the document from an entirely different computer (open directly from TpT) Please let me know if any of these option help and, if they don't, you'll have to contact TpT for a refund (sellers don't handle anything money-related). Let me know if there's anything else I can do on my end to make this right! Thanks again for your purchase and have a great day!
The presentation is awesome! I was a little disappointed with the bird adaptation activity and the plant activity because they are the same ones I have in our science textbooks. I was hoping for something different that I could add to my lessons.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I purchased your Ultimate Life Science Unit. The Awesome Adaptations Game sounds like a lot of fun. One question though---Do the students use the (household) adaptations to collect the food and shelter? For example, do they actually have to use a stapler remover to pick up the food and shelter. I just wanted to make sure I was clear on this before attempting it. Thanks.
Actually, sellers do not handle reimbursements. TPT takes care of that. Unfortunately, I am not running a sale despite the fact that my page showed items on sale. I have had crazy things happening with a sale and prices. I did have a sale on Sunday and for some reason my items were still showing up for the sale price, some were not....I am not sure what the deal has been. I have seen some sellers that said they were running a sale and nothing was marked down, so I know it's got to be something from TPT. When I checked a minute ago, nothing was showing up on sale anymore so the glitch must be fixed. I am sorry for the confusion this caused. I hate that happened. Technology sometimes does not always cooperate. If you paid full price and it was marked on sale, then please contact TPT.
