My series of Earth Science PowerPoint flashcards was created to guide the student through the step by step process of interpreting the charts, diagrams, and formulas contained in the New York State Earth Science Reference Tables. You may think there are so few slides for the price I have listed on my other posted slide shows. My slides are packed with numerous animation steps in order to make the step by step lesson possible. This is the time consuming part- and I do mean time consuming! I created these flashcards because my series of Physical Science PowerPoint flashcards were so successful in improving the averages of my 8th grade students- especially the inclusion students. Those flashcards were assigned for 15 minute study sessions at least 4 to 5 times during a unit. Each signed flashcard ticket earned a 100 as a homework grade. So students that would never open a binder to study for a test or quiz were finally experiencing success! Although I am an 8th grade honors Earth Science teacher- I started the project for the sake of my 8th grade Physical Science students; these students would take the Earth Science Regents exam in 10th grade. I wanted them to have the same study tool that proved so useful for them in 8th grade. I made my flashcards available to all Earth Science and Special Education teachers. I know my flashcards are used at the high school because many of my former students have told me how much they help. (In fact I have gotten requests to create Biology flashcards- but Bio is just not my thing.) My director recently commented that my flashcards will still be helping students even after I retire (in three weeks!). So I hope you download my free preview and see how useful the PowerPoint flashcards really are. (I do plan on bundling them for a discounted price- but I have so many yet to post. I'll get there eventually.) As a final comment, my flashcards are much like me- they are not flashy, but they get the job done!
