This is an awesome STAIR.  The part the I find to be the most helpful is how you have the buttons timed.  It helps the students slow down and really process the information before moving on.  I also really like how you have sound effects to keep the students engaged.  This STAIR teaches students information gradually and then test their knowledge.  I think you did a really nice job of slowly introducing the information before testing their knowledge.  I also like how you have the students go back and review the information when they answered a question incorrectly.  This helps to make sure students understand the information before moving on.  I would highly recommend this STAIR to upper elementary teachers.  Great job!

this is a great stair!  the images that you used are excellent.  the questions were good with the appropriate sounds.  the diagrams were an excellent teaching tool with the animated arrows-these were perfect for teaching tectonic plates.  i like how the content did not come out on the slides all at once.  you effectively used animation to bring small chunks of content into the presentation.  i noticed the vocabulary words were a different color (white) font within the paragraphs.  they stood out nicely.  your rewards were fun and age appropriate.  i think the kids will like spongebob and tony the tiger.  wondering where you found all the thumbs up pictures.  i really am impressed with your slide transition arrows popping up in an animated fashion.  this doesn't allow the student to flip through the stair quickly, allowing plenty of time to read and comprehend.  this stair was easy to use.  i plan to use it in the future.
