Help requested for this page.

While I am confident with my lesson plans and how well they work for me, I am wondering about a few technical details. I only came to Canada after marrying a Canadian. I was born in Zimbabwe and we used the terms "lamp", "battery" (sometimes "cell") and "crocodile clips". I am aware that my terminology is not always the most common and would like to use the most widely accepted versions. What is your opinion.

The lesson plan will slowly unfold as I find time.

Hi Hilville,

Don't let the terminology changes slow you down. This is an international resource. You will find British and also American spelling, spanners as well as wrenches. I am not aware of any movement to standardize, so by all means use the terms that come to mind, or that work best in your classroom. I happen to be a transplanted Irish person, but I use American English for the convenience of my students.

Most important, you are developing child friendly science lessons. We need as many as we can get! Dmccabe 03:59, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi there. Welcome aboard! We have some resources built by trainee teachers that may be of interest to you: Biology in elementary schools.

Hi. Thanks. This is all new to me and I am just learning how to do this as part of a course on e-learning and technology in the classroom. It looks exciting but rather difficult. --Hilville 20:05, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi again,

It is not nearly as difficult as it seems. You are clearly making a great start with the electrical circuits. One of my students is working on a child-friendly flashlight (or lamp; or torch) design. We'll share it as soon as we have it working. Keep up the good work Dmccabe 03:52, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
