|This is a great unit with a 1800 slide interactive
approach to PowerPoint that covers science
topics associated with weathering, soil, particle
size, soil conservation, ice ages, glaciers,
glacial landforms, and much more. This unit is
full of great hands-on activities that explore soil.
The ice ages and glaciers section is fantastic,
especially if you teach in an area shaped by the
last ice age. Molding glacial landforms onto a
clay mountain is one of my favorites.
Teaching Duration = 5 Weeks
|The Soil Science and Ice Ages Unit includes a four part interactive and engaging
PowerPoint Presentation of 1800+ slides with built-in class notes (Red Slides), lab
activities, project ideas, discussion questions, assessments (Quiz Wiz), challenge
questions with answers, videos, and much more. Text is displayed 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 the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. The entire unit except for the
videos can be edited to fit any curriculum or time requirement. Also included is a 12
page assessment that chronologically follows the slideshow for nightly homework, as
well as a 9 page modified assessment. 18 pages of class notes 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. Several
video links 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. Two
PowerPoint review games are included (110+ slides each). 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, crosswords,
and the find the hidden owl somewhere within the slideshow are provided.
Difficulty rating 6/10.
