The DNA and Genetics Unit covers science topics associated with the DNA molecule, discovery of DNA, DNA's structure, cellular division, cancer, dangers of smoking, meiosis, and genetics. This unit includes a five part interactive and engaging PowerPoint Presentation of 2000+ slides with built-in class notes (Red Slides), lab activities, project ideas, discussion questions, assessments (Quiz Wiz), challenge questions with answers, video links, and much more. Text is in large print (32 font) and is placed at the top of each slide so it can seen and read from all angles of a classroom. A shade technique and color coded text helps to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. The entire unit except for the videos can be edited to fit any curriculum or time requirement. Also included is a 14 page assessment that chronologically goes with the slideshow for nightly homework, as well as an 8 page modified assessment. 12 pages of class notes with images are also included for students who require modifications, as well as answer keys to both of the assessments for support professionals, teachers, and homeschool parents. 13 video links (.flv files) are provided and a slide within the slideshow cues teacher / parent when the videos are most relevant to play. Video shorts usually range from 2-7 minutes (internet connection needed). One PowerPoint review game is included (125+ slides). Answers to the PowerPoint review game are provided in PowerPoint form so students can self-assess. Lastly, several class games such as guess the hidden picture beneath the boxes, and the find the hidden owl somewhere within the slideshow are provided. Difficulty rating 9/10.
