"I thought this PowerPoint was awesome! It used correct terminology and was very detailed. Love that it included student notes!"

Lots of detail and vocabulary! Just what I was looking for!"

Detailed and high quality!


The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

Please view the Preview to obtain a sense of my style, see how my power point lesson is structured and evaluate my work. My teaching philosophy is engagement through application. This lesson sees to both through interactive simulations, videos and clearly laid out slides.

This package represents many hours of work and refinement and includes a fully coloured and interactive PowerPoint lesson which will truly engage your students.
