I used a screen recording from this read aloud on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDs39lzSGww to eliminate adds and automatically launched YT videos after this video ends. I used free Scientific Method Clip Art from Ginger Snaps blog: http://gingersnapstreatsforteachers.blogspot.com/2012/07/scientific-method-posters-and-cards.html
