PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Topic: Community Ecology

This complete teaching unit plan contains 10 separate products. This bundled unit contains 6 to 7 days of teaching materials if you complete all of the enclosed labs and activities. It includes everything you need to teach a unit on community ecology to your life science or biology students. My free preview gives a complete description of each product that is included.

When appropriate, I have included each product as an editable Word document, and I have also included each product in PDF form. Each of these products is sold separately in my TpT store, but buying the entire unit in one download will save you money. If each of these products were purchased separately, the total cost would be $20.50. I am selling the complete bundle of products for $14.99.

All answers are included.

Community Ecology PowerPoint with Notes for Teacher and Student

I use the materials by Science Stuff because they are thorough, covering the material I feel is necessary for my biology students. I use her material in my preAP biology class and find that I only have to enhance this material a little more to cover my AP biology.
On  November 4, 2012Science Stuff answered:
I appreciate your feedback. I am thrilled that you find my work thorough and that you are able to use it in classes of different ability levels. I see that you found the 10 different products contained in this complete unit plan to be perfect 4.0's in every category except for creativity. I am a bit puzzled by the mark down in this area. The PowerPoint has 55 slides that are packed with color, fabulous photographs and eye-catching charts and diagrams. I feel that two of the activities creatively blend the common core requirement of informational text into engaging reading and graphing activities. Thanks so much for purchasing my products, and I do appreciate your feedback.
