    I would love to use the video clips in my classroom, clip 2 – 4 downloaded no problem. Clip 1 does not download as quick time. Is there something different I can do to download it? I would like to use this in the next week!!

    Thank you, Kelly Matlick 6th grade science teacher

    Thank you so much for having the Educator’s tab and lesson activities and all! We just started homeschooling and the kids loved making a lap book and reenacting what they learned while watching the Eagles! Thank you so much!
