I used this with my 7th grade Science classes. I liked that I could finish the whole thing with my advanced class, yet there was a logical stopping stop for the other classes to keep them all in sync. Our text uses slighty different language - scientific inqury instead of scientific method, and manipulated and responding variables instead of independent and dependent variables - but this just provided for an opportunity to discuss all of the verbage they are likely to encounter.
Thanks for a great presentation.

Thanks so much! I modified this for use with my AP Bio classes as we review scientific method before they design their own experiment. I love the PowerPoint too but feel you went a little overboard with the animations. I am going to have to take a lot out or I will be clicking all day :) I don't have a 'clicker' so I actually have to stand at my computer and use the mouse, otherwise this might not be such an issue for me. Thanks though, great materials!!
