|The picture on the left is fitting as students would
record class notes, quizzes, lab activities, graphs,
follow-up questions, and review games in a
science journal as they follow a PowerPoint
slideshow on the computer. The slideshow
requires students to complete labs, conduct
projects, complete worksheets, answer questions,
and watch videos on the computer. They would
also complete a large bundled work package as
they move through the unit. This curriculum is a
combination of using technology and traditional
pen and pencil learning.
|Each of the 20 units can take upward of a month+ to complete. Most of the lab
activities can be conducted using materials found at home. Answer keys are
provided for the unit assessment, modified assessment, readings, and
PowerPoint review games. The parents would also get a copy of the class
notes which would resemble the students science journal. Parents can use the
class notes and answer keys to assist their learner when needed and for
assessing their level of understanding (See example below). Each unit is full of
amazing visuals, challenging lab activities, review opportunities, video links,
review games, and much more.
|The internet has some amazing
resources, but finding them can
be a difficult and time
consuming process. Some
slides will provide links to
educational videos or really
great websites to explore. Just
click the link and now you are
blasting off Earth and exploring
the Martian surface.
|Slides within the slideshow cue the
student and parent to various
readings. Minimize out of
PowerPoint and open up the lab
and activities folder to find the
reading. Here students read an
article about the Love Canal
Disaster. Students are given a
choice of questions to answer after
completion. Answers keys are
|The large units are broken
down into many smaller areas
of focus. Parents and students
are alerted when they are going
to change topics. This system
keeps the students science
journal organized and recalling
information a snap. This slide
is color coded red so it should
be recorded in the students
|Each unit comes with one or more Powerpoint review games and answers. A
review game template is provided. You can choose to let your student use their
science journal, or try and complete the review on their own. The last round is all
bonus and always a lot of fun.
|Student's will also have the
opportunity to participate in
activities that they won't find in a
textbook. Here students will see
various pictures of real and
animated faults and folds. They
put their notes to work to
complete the quiz. The answers
are provided at the end so the
student and parent can determine
their level of understanding.
|The units offered on this website are student and teacher friendly. The PowerPoint
slideshow will take you and your student through lab activities, follow-up questions,
projects, challenge opportunities, important notes, videos, review games, and other
great learning experiences. The bundled homework package with answers helps to
review lessons and important concepts. If you purchase a unit and are not completely
satisfied, please contact me a firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly
refund your entire purchase. Thank you for viewing this website.

|"Science was never a favorite subject at our house until Middle School. Mr. Murphy
has a passion that was passed along to both of my students. They always came
home sharing stories of a class that was exciting and fun. They created beautiful
science journals that my oldest student (now graduating H.S.) has referred back to
during Biology and Zoology classes. Today, if anyone asks either of my children
what their favorite school subject is, both answer "Science" without hesitation (One is
even talking about a career in science!) Mr. Murphy introduced science to our family
in a fun, and motivating way."
