|The Diseases and Cells Unit is intended for students in grades 7-10 and includes an interactive
and engaging PowerPoint Presentation of 2350+ slides with built-in class notes (Red Slides),
lab activities, project ideas, discussion questions, assessments, challenge questions with
answers, review games, videos, and much more. Text is provided in large print (32 font) and is
placed at the top of each slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. A shade
technique and color coded text helps to increase student focus and allows teacher to control the
pace of the lesson. Also included is a 18 page (Microsoft 2003 word doc.) assessment / bundled
homework package that chronologically follows the PowerPoint slideshow as well as a 8 page
modified assessment. 25 pages of class notes (Word doc.) with images are also included for
students who require assistance, as well as answer keys to both of the assessments for support
professionals, teachers, and homeschool parents. 38 video shorts (.flv files) are provided and a
slide within the slideshow cues teacher / parent when the videos are most relevant to play.
Video shorts usually range from 2-7 minutes and are included in organized folders. Two
PowerPoint review games (125+ slides each) are included. Answers to the PowerPoint review
games are provided in PowerPoint form so students can self-assess. Lastly, several class
games such as guess the hidden picture beneath the boxes, and the find the hidden owl
somewhere within the slideshow are provided. Difficulty rating of 9 (Ten is most difficult).
|This is such a great tag team of topics. The unit starts
with infectious diseases, and then tackles cellular
biology. Amazing images of viruses, bacteria, and
cellular organelles makes this unit great for the visual
learner. The chronological homework package that
follows the PowerPoint road map is one of my favorites.
Please visit the links on the left to see the 3,000+ slide
PowerPoint. This is a great unit for any life science
class. Teaching Duration = 7+ Weeks.
