It allows students to get the basic information about the two types of factors, and provides examples to support the definitions. Students try out their knowledge by completing two different closure activities.
Slide 2-5- Background Information
Slide 6- Abiotic and Biotic Factors
Slide 7-9- Identifying Factors
Slide 10-12- Getting Creative with Abiotic and Biotic Factors
