This .zip file contains materials for a middle school science lesson on the 5 abiotic factors (air, water, soil, sunlight, and climate) that shape the formation of different biomes and ecosystems around the world, as part of a unit on Biomes and Evolution. The unit was designed for 6th graders in NYC.
-SMARTboard .notebook lesson presentation (10 slides) including a video link.
-1 homework assignment
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentations include links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
'Ask a question' if you need a PowerPoint file instead of what is provided, and I can probably re-upload everything with an adjusted file.
