Hey no prob! Using Firefox, search "Easy YouTube downloader plug-in" install the plug-in and restart Firefox. You will then see a download button below all YouTube videos while using Firefox and should just download videos for lessons to avoid issues with your network restrictions! Best

Hello,

I am teaching a unit on energy transformations, however I do not teach simple and compound machines. Is this "too" targeted toward that particular topic? I just want something to focus on energy and its transformations rather than focusing on simple machines.

The Jello is to be made beforehand, not by the students. Easiest to make it inside individual plastic bags (1 per group/pair), then there's no scooping or pre-lab Jello mess.

Hi,
Your units look great. I tried downloading the notebook software with the sample lesson for scientific method. It worked fine, but since we use promethian smart boards, I think it will be confusing to have both control panels/softwares on my screens.
Do you have these saved as pdf files? This would make your units universally usable.
Or do you have a different work around?

Inside the .zip file, there are multiple versions of the "Presentations." All of them have a PowerPoint version and a SMARTboard Notebook software version (.notebook files). They contain the same content, but may just have different fonts and colors. You do not need the Notebook files if you can open the .pptx files. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

There are a few hands on activities with some of the simple machines. The most fun thing to do would be Rube Goldberg machines, but this can take a lot of effort and needs a lot of supplies. Perhaps students could bring things in if you give done examples. Best of luck, J

Which Apple programs are you referring to? Most of the MS Office programs are Mac versions, but will open on any relatively recent PC versions of MS Office. So unless you have a very old version, this should not be a problem. If you are referring to the .notebook files, you need SMARTboard's Notebook software, as specified in the listing. Go to smarttech.com to download, or express.smarttech.com to use the browser version of Notebook.

Buyer re: Producers, Consumers & Decomposers - Lesson Presentations, Videos
I would like to purchase your item but I am unable to use you tube and I only have a promethean board not a smartboard. Would I still be able to purchase and use this?

For the YouTube issue, I recommend downloading the "Easy YouTube Downloader" plugin for Firefox browser (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easy-youtube-video-downl-10137/). This will allow you to download YouTube videos so you can watch them without using YouTube.com.

You do not need a Smartboard to use the files I have. You only need SMARTtech's Notebook software, or can go to http://express.smarttech.com to open the presentation files. Alternatively, I could [slowly] copy and paste the presentation information onto a PowerPoint file, but would not be able to do this until later tonight.

Buyer re: Simple Machines & Energy FULL UNIT: 73 Files = 16+Lessons Lab Experiments Videos
I recently bought your simple machine unit. Lots of great resources but I am having trouble opening up the presentations; like the pulley, wedge, wheel and axle presentations. It is opening a blank firefox tab everytime I click open. Could you please help me figure out how to open these documents? Thank you for your time!

Do you have Notebook software? Otherwise go to express.smarttech.com and you should be able to open the .notebook files there.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Middle School Science Teacher Science Department Head K-12 Tutor Family Literacy Program Designer & Lead Instructor GED Tutor Computer Literacy Trainer Basketball Coach

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is always to develop a love and habit of learning in children, no matter the age. I have a true passion for the teachings of science, and use its philosophies and thought processes no matter the subject I am working with. I aim to push my students past simple, multiple-choice, state-standards based learning and work towards true understanding manifested in the ability to re-teach material and skills to others; to develop more teachers, in a sense.
