These are slides I created to go with Amplify's 4th Grade (Grade 4) Light and Vision unit, Chapter 2, How does light allow a Tokay gecko to see its prey?
These are Smartboard Notebook files including 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 (please make sure you have downloaded Smartboard Notebook as these files only work with that application.)
Use this as a visual to go with your Amplify Teacher's guide. I've added all projection slides from the Amplify site and taken out the most important points in the lessons, and main activities. Some scripted teaching is needed from the Amplify teacher's guide. Students will also need a notebook, or Amplify's notebook if purchased. (I only use a black & white marble notebook with my students) Many of the reflections and questions can be done in a standard notebook.
Teachers and students will need materials from the Amplify kits to create as well as access to any online tools (Teacher's Guide, Books, access to Students Apps Page)
Hope this helps in your teaching!
