Kids love animals! You'll have no problem motivating your students to study this topic! They can't wait for the next lesson!
This detailed Keynote presentation will support your teaching about animals who live in the seven major biomes of the world.
It includes hundreds of vivid photos of animals and habitats. The text is descriptive and appropriate for young children to read. Each new topic includes links to short videos that make the learning come alive. It's easy to use and your students will remain engaged as you present new content.
