For my second lesson on this chapter I showed my class Ok Go's Rube Goldberg machine music video for "This Too Shall Pass."

"Needing/Getting" has a cool video that's relevant to inventions as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MejbOFk7H6c
The kids were in AWE of it. Even my noisiest and least well behaved students were transfixed. They had to do a crossword (A class) and word search (B class) about it, but both groups said they were too hard, so I won't bother posting them. It's that time of the semester, I guess.

I've attached the material for part one "are you sure".  I got the majority of the lesson plan from someone on this thread, but I added the board game and bingo instructions on the bottom.

Here is my material for part 2: I'm sorry. 

I've included the Bert and Ernie video for the warm-up and the speaking activity handouts are on the last two slides of the presentation.
