This Powerpoint is for a high school Biology I class and covers material on the scientific method and characteristics of living things. This is one of the first lessons I cover for Biology I. Presentation has several links to images and video clips that can be used as examples of topics/concepts within the lesson. Many of these video clips are no longer than 4 minutes long. I have included notes for each slide of topics of discussion that I use. The two week instructional time is based on a high school 4x4 schedule and is dependent on the number of activities used within the lesson. Activities which can be implemented includes graphing, developing a scientific procedure, identifying variables within a study. I will be including some of these items within my store.
