JASON THIBODEAU: Hello, my name is Jason Thibodeau, and I invented the couch protector. The reason why I invented the couch protector was because I always had the problem with my dogs getting on the couch when I was gone. This solves the problem, because when the dogs jump on the couch... (high-pitched alarm beeps) It goes off just like that and scares them immediately off the second they jump on.
This is how it works. Inside this tarp there's two pieces of wood which have two sheets of metal inside, so when it contacts... (alarm beeping) It completes the circuit right to the alarm. And a 40-pound dog could set this off. I've had my little brother sit on this quite a few times, and that's how I tested it with 40 pounds. (alarm beeps, boy yelps)
Now I don't have to put anything on the couch to block my dogs. All you have to do is, right before you leave, you place it right on the couch, put this on top of the back of the couch, and then you're ready to go.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
