Buyer re: Halloween Science! Weird and Spooky Science Demonstrations!
I'm having problems locating a dry ice vendor. I noticed in the end of the activity you mention buying it last minute from the grocery store. What grocery store do you use?

I have used both Kroger and Albertson's. I believe most large grocery stores sell dry ice. An employee has to help you with it because they have to wear insulated gloves and I generally take an insulated container with me so I can get it to school. Another thought is buying it from a sporting goods store which sells lots of hunting and camping equipment because people will use dry ice in their coolers to keep their meat frozen. Call ahead to see if they carry it. I hope this helps!

I really like the mini quiz, but there are some major typos in the first couple of questions. #1 asks about a face in the frying pan, but a hand in the answers. #2 A WOMAN walks barefoot...... burning HIS feet.

Very useful otherwise! Thanks!

Paul, You may have this download mixed up with another one because there is no mini-quiz here, and no questions as you state above. This download is all demos. Thank you though!

I'm so sorry! I just revised it and reloaded yesterday. I wonder if I did something wrong. The only way I know of to give your money back is to send you a check. I will be happy to do that. If you could email me your address and how you want the check made out, I'll be happy to take care of that. My email address is: vlbarber@verizon.net.

Kathy P. re: Halloween Science! Weird and Spooky Science Demonstrations!
Have you ever had trouble with the ghost writing not disappearing for the initial part? We tried both items to react and the Exlax leaves a brown residue. Help! Our spooky science night is Tuesday, Oct. 30th. Thank you!

Vicki - The Science Lady  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kathy. I'm so sorry you are having trouble. The phenolphthalein I use disappears on the paper. It takes awhile for it to dry - I make them up the day before. It leaves a slight puckering on the paper and if you bend and 'age' the paper a little the puckering blends in and is not noticeable. I have to apologize for the Exlax idea - I used that early in my career and have since used straight phenolphthalein from a science supplier. I learned today, after your question, that Exlax no longer contains phenolphthalein. I will take that suggestion out of the product. Here is an alternative: make some cabbage juice indicator by boiling red cabbage and collecting the dark blue juice. You can write a spooky message using vinegar or stronger acid on a piece of paper, let it dry, then spray it with the cabbage juice and the message will appear pink. I've tried it the other way too, like drawing a house or stick figure with the cabbage juice, and then spraying it with vinegar and the blue house turns pink. Another way to use the cabbage juice is this: have 3-5 clear plastic glasses, half-way filled with a clear liquid - one contains pure vinegar, one diluted vinegar, one pure water, one dilute baking soda solution and the last one strong baking soda solution (in water). Take the cabbage juice (have it in a flask or cool container), say a few magic words, and add some cabbage juice to each cup, down the line. The acids will turn shades of red and pink, and the bases will turn blues and greens. I hope this helps. But, again, the pure phenolphthalein is a clear liquid and dries clear on the paper for me. Let me know if I can do anything else to help. If you feel you want a refund, please ask. I want you to be happy.

Buyer re: Halloween Science! Weird and Spooky Science Demonstrations!
Can I get a refund on this item? I bought it because you advertised grocery store items and thought it would be pretty easy to use. We aren't allowed to use dry ice at our school, and the modified cord isn't exactly grocery-store materials. The labs are not what I thought they would be.
Thanks.

I'm sorry this did not work for you. I would be happy to send you a refund. My email is vlbarber@verizon.net. I have searched this site and have not found a way to refund from here. I would be happy to send you a personal check if you give me your address. If you know how I can refund you from my site, let me know and I will do it that way.
Thanks - Vicki

Buyer re: The Metric System: Introduction and Practice
Hi - Im new to TPT. Can you tell me if I download your powerpoint on my home computer, am I able to transfer it to my school computer? I would I need to download it on my school computer initially? Thanks! Brenda

Vicki - The Science Lady
Vicki - The Science Lady  (TpT Seller)
Hi Brenda. The best thing to do would be download the powerpoint onto a flash drive (thumb drive, removable disk - USB) and take it to school, and open it on your school computer, then you can save it there, and use it at will. Another option would be to save the powerpoint as a file on your home computer, then send yourself an email to school and attach the powerpoint. At school, you should be able to open the attachment, save it as a file and you'll have it to use it when you want to. I hope this helps.

After downloading the activity to my laptop, I attempted to save it to a flash drive so I could print it at school. (I don't have access to a printer at home.) However the Word Documents are read only and can't be saved. Any suggestions?

I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie since my name is Vicky as well. I left you a rating. Well done!

I have a couple of suggestions that might help you to better market this product. First, create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or a suggestion page. List several ways you use this in your classroom - Homework? Open book test? Partner acitivity? Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

I hope you will have time to rate one of my freebies listed below.

Good luck as you sell on TPT!

I appreciate your help. I will definitely take your advice. I am new and trying to see how others are presenting their products. I apologize for the late reply - I have been out of town and away from my computer. I will be happy to check out your products and do the same for you.
Thank you so much.
And good luck to you too!

I apologize. I am just getting started with this and trying the learn. The second page is a blank periodic table. I will try to re-upload the activity. If it doesn't work, I'll pull it until I get it fixed. You may download a blank periodic table on the Internet by googling it. Then I just photocopied the instructions and gave each student a blank perioic table to color. Sorry for the trouble.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have logged twenty-eight wonderful years in public education teaching various science subjects from grades 6 through 12. I currently teach at an alternative school for at-risk youth and teen moms. It's a great place to teach - classes are small and we can really get to know our students. I get to be a facilitator and do a lot of up-close and personal teaching. This is why I became a teacher! I love what I do! I love to share lessons and see what others are doing in the classroom. That's why I love TpT. It has expanded my knowledge base and reenergized my career!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a facilitator. I work one-on-one with the students because each of our students have an individualized plan. We tailor the curriculum to meet their unique needs. My philosophy is: find their strengths and build on them; find their weaknesses and strengthen them. I am so proud to be a teacher. What a wonderful profession - being able to foster a love of learning.
