Two versions of this lesson!

The first is a Presentation - PowerPoint/Google Slides - for those teachers who know the topic and want to guide their students through the material. This class takes approximately two 60-minutes periods. There are five links to Youtube in the presentation. The videos total ~15 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary. There are handouts for note taking along with reflection questions included with this presentation.

The second version consists of the information and images on worksheets that the students can read through at their own pace. This is best done if laptops or tablets are available for the class or for online learning. This version comes with more indepth questions that the students can work through at their own pace.
