This was designed for a special education classroom, specifically a SEBD (Severe Emotional Behavior Disorder) classroom. My students struggle to pay attention and grasp complicated theories. Some of them also struggle academically. With this in mind, I designed powerpoints that covered each standards Big Ideas.
Please check out my other units. The entire 6th and 8th grade Science Georgia Performance Standards is available. I am working on creating 7th grade Science and 6th-8th grade Social Studies PowerPoints, also. You may also use these PowerPoints in other grade levels in other states as you see fit.
The following topics are covered in this unit:
Plate Tectonics and Continental Drift
Events at Plate Boundaries
The Rock Cycle
Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition
Fossils and Earth's History
I did not pdf these files, since I wanted you to be able to edit them to fit the needs of your classroom. Please be patient as I figure all this out.
