                              ® Here is the Powerpoint presentation made in December 2009 in my son’s 5th-grade science class (you may need to download it to be able to see the animations)

® Here is the presentation I made in May 2011 to my son’s 6th-grade class. It contains links to three multimedia files, so you’ll probably have to download them as well (and put them in the same folder as the pptx file for the links to work).

This is a list of articles that I have. E-mail me if you would like a copy of one that is not electronic.
