This is a COMPREHENSIVE BUNDLE UNIT which includes: a 90 slide powerpoint lecture series, 2 review sheets, 3 quizzes, and 2 homework assignments, and teacher keys. This covers almost all aspects of evolution!
(This lecture is a pdf download to keep formatting, if you would like it in google slides, please message me and I will be happy to email it to you!)
It can be taught over weeks or MONTHS, depending on the amount of depth the teacher would like to go into.
