Hi Amanda,

I am so sorry that your students had trouble with the activity. I just double checked the answers on each page and couldn't find any that were wrong. I'm wondering if possibly your students had difficulty scanning the correct codes. In my class, I have the students cut a square out of a piece of paper and use that as a shield, so it is easier to scan the correct code.
I hope that makes sense. Please let me know if you have any other issues. My email address is kchstar@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Kristin

Hi, originally when I created this file, it was difficult to find commercial use clipart that wasn't too expensive. Thanks for the reminder that I need to update this file now that there is so much wonderful clipart on TPT. I just revised this product to include clipart that represents African American students. I'm still on the lookout for similar clipart to represent other students as well. Thanks for contacting me about this! Thanks also to http://frompond.blogspot.com for creating this adorable clipart to make my product even better :)

Do you think this would work for a 6th grade classroom?

Hi, not sure where you teach but I just looked at the 6th grade Economics standards in Florida and they seem to focus more on global economics and trade with other countries.

If your standards are similar, I think you could still have a Flea Market with your class without purchasing my product. Maybe have each student represent a country, research, and create a product/service to trade. They could write a report on the currency in their country, trade laws, etc. Then sell their products at the market.
I had this idea while looking at the standards, but checked on TPT and this is the closest that I found. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Mock-World-Trade-Game
If you would like to try this and need some help with the rubric, email me at kchstar@yahoo.com. I hope it works out!

I love this unit. It looks fabulous. Here's the problem..
I have a macbbook pro and I'm freaking out I can't open this file. I could download your sample to view before purchasing... Now I can't open this at all and I've downloaded this several times. I also have a promethean board..SOS

Hi, I am so sorry. Somehow I have not been getting my messages from TPT and just saw this now. Did you figure this out? If not please email me at kchstar@yahoo.com and I will try to send this in another format or help you troubleshoot this issue. Again, I am so sorry. Not sure how I missed this question :(

Super cute idea!
How do you start this? Graphic organizer?
do you have them go to websites? Books?
Id love to do this in my class, but I'm not sure how to organize their research....

Hi, if you email me at kchstar@yahoo.com I will send you some things that I use with my class. There is one cute website that lists the top 10 animal adaptations. I usually start by telling what an adaptation is and then have students work in groups to come up with a list of what they think the top ten adaptations would be. Then they compare their list to the actual list. If you email me I will send more details.Thanks

Lucky Girl  (TpT Seller)
Hi, you should be able to open the pdf file, which is the main part of the unit. The notebook files contain a spinner for students to see if they will create a good or service, and a short advertising lesson. Still, I would love for you to have access to the entire file. Do you have any type of interactive whiteboard software? If so then try the following steps
-Click the Windows key and search for the file name
-Right Click and choose "open with"
-choose other and search for your interactive whiteboard software (promethean, mimio, etc
-Click Save

I really hope this works. Keep me posted if not, and I will try to find another solution. Thanks so much for visiting my store!

Hi, I introduce the project before our weather unit so the students get really excited and pay more attention to vocabulary/videos, etc. I used some of the weather packets from other sellers here on TPT. During the unit, students take notes and write down vocabulary words with definitions.
Next I read Cloudy with a chance of... and ask students to create a list of weather words they heard in the story. Then we watch video of real weather forecasts (you tube) and even some student weather forecasts. Next I go over the rubric again and give each group a copy. First they write scripts and make storyboards for their movie, then they film using Flip cameras or iPod Touches in front of our green screen. If you don't have a green screen, you can buy lime green cloth which should work too. I hope that helps!

Hi, I hope you saw my last response below from October 23rd. You will need Mimio Notebook to open this file. If you don't have access to this program, please email me at kchstar@yahoo.com and I will send you a PowerPoint version that you can import to another whiteboard program. Again, I am so sorry you are having difficulty with this.

Hi, I'm so sorry you are having trouble. Do you have a Mimio or another type of Interactive Whiteboard? Also, is there an error message when you are trying to open the file? This will help me figure out what could be wrong.

In the meantime if you need this lesson right away, please email me at kchstar@yahoo.com and I will send you a PowerPoint version of the lesson that you can use.

I can't open it either. I just saw your note about making sure you have the program to open it. Oops! I saw it was for SmartBoards and I have Notebook that I use on my SmartBoard. I can't get it to work. Is there something else I should be trying? Or can I get it as a powerpoint also? Thanks so much!

Hi, I'm so sorry you are having difficulties also. I have searched the internet and can't find another solution so will definitely send you the PowerPoint. My email address is kchstar@yahoo.com. If you email me, I will send the file to your email address.

I do have a friend who works at a school with Smartboards. When I get a chance to visit with her, I will look into this further. If I have any additional updates on how to convert the file, I will send them to you. I really hope it works out. My class loved this lesson, so hopefully yours will too :)

Hi, unfortunately I don't have Smartboard or Promethean software. Here is a suggestion for you to try. If that doesn't work, please let me know and I will creat a PowerPoint of the file for you to use. I hope it works for you, as it really is a cute lesson. My students used it last week and loved it! Please let me know either way :)

Note: This file is for saving a Smartboard file to use with Mimio, but it should still work to save a mimio file as a different version.

Hi, I am so sorry you are having trouble with this. I found this tutorial which explains how to convert from Smartboard to Mimio. I think if you try this same process with the Mimio Notebook file (opening it with ActiveInspire), it will hopefully work. I just recently switched from Smartboard to Mimio, and when I tried this it worked for me with most of my files. Some files do contain "Smartboard" or "Mimio" specific content, which doesn't transfer very easily.

http://fdlrs.leeschools.net/pdf/technology/Saving%20SMART%20Notebook%20Files%20to%20MimioStudio%20Files.pdf

If this doesn't work, please let me know and I can either convert this to a PowerPoint Presentation for you, or I will email TeachersPayTeachers to help you see how to get your money back for this product. Again, I am so sorry you are having difficulties and hope you are able to get this file working in time for your lesson!
