Product Questions & Answers

On  November 3, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi,

Thank you - this is exactly what I'm looking for.

But, I'm teaching ESL in Thailand and there are no skittles here.

Can you suggest something else?

Many thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 3, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Oh, yikes. Any type of sugar-based candy will dissolve. If you have any hard candies like jolly ranchers or peppermints, that will work. Good luck!
On  September 7, 2013Elizabeth Danielson (TpT Seller) asked:
Ari,

Can this be adapted to 1st grade? I love the Skittles experiment. It looks like something I could do with my class to teach the Scientific Method and Tools.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 8, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Hi Elizabeth, This might scare me to do with 1st, although I'm sure it's been done. :) The language and information would have to be adapted quite a bit to work for first grade. Thanks!

On  September 2, 2013Sarah Kennedy (TpT Seller) asked:
For the skittles experiment, how did you explain to students when to record how much time has passed, when the skittle loses all its color and size changes? Is this kind of what you told them to be able to tell when its starting to dissolve? The skittle isn't supposed to completely dissolve right? Its taking me a lot longer than the 3 minutes for warm temperature and the 5 minutes for room temperature to get the skittle to completely dissolve. Thanks for your help!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 2, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
Some teachers have reported longer dissolving times depending on the consistency of the skittles and the temperatures of the water. I listed the greatest amount of time I heard about in the packet, which was about 15 minutes. We were able to get them to dissolve completely, but it does take some time. I hope this helps.
On  September 2, 2013Elizabeth Danielson (TpT Seller) asked:
Ari, this is fantastic! I am on the same lessons, only at a first grade level. Does your district use "road Maps" instead of Scope and Sequence and YAAG? We are using them this year. They originate from Margaret Kilgo from Houston ISD. Just wondering. Thank you for great lessons. I'm glad to know I'm on the right track with my science lessons.
Sincerely, Elizabeth Danielson

Hello,
Are the files in a format that they can be modified or is the file format for all the forms in pdf?

All of my products are secured documents that can not be edited. The power point allow you to delete slides, move them, etc., but the information stays the same.

Would these be appropriate for fourth grade?

Check the preview carefully to make sure, but I've used many of these activities with 4th graders before.

I teach 6th grade Science in GA and I really want to use your entire Earth Science Bundle. Do you think it would apply to 6th graders? Age range 11-12.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 2, 2013The Science Penguin answered:
I'm not familiar with the Georgia standards, so I recommend looking at each of the products in the bundle individually to see if they match. I know there are many 6th grade teachers who have mentioned using my products, but it's different for everyone. Thanks!
