This was intended for Middle School age children or older. Some of the videos may be blocked on your school server. If you give the links to your technology representative, they may be able to unlock them easily. This can be done in small chunks, or you may project bits of it to the entire class. It was intended to be done independently by my students by clicking through the links. The navigation may seem a little strange until you turn on the slide show and actually click the links. Be patient and follow it in slide show format. Please let me know if you find any great links that should be added or let me know if I left out vital information.
