This PowerPoint presentation and corresponding worksheet is a great way to introduce eclipses and tides. This one-day lesson reviews types of eclipses and how tides are created. It also includes a demonstration.
Slide information is presented so that underlined information is what the students need to write down in their notes. Slides are designed so that all the information does not appear at once and continues by clicking through the program at the appropriate pace. Additionally, each PowerPoint slide set starts with a bell question to activate learning and an exit question to quickly assess students.
The files are PowerPoint 2007 and PDFs in a zip file. The PowerPoint slides are compatible with Windows 7/Power Point 2007 or later. Packet is appropriate for 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, and homeschool students.
While this curriculum is designed to be turn-key with minimal changes, please keep in mind that all schools are different regarding standards focus, class-period time, etc. If you have questions, concerns, or catch a typo (hopefully not!), please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please take a moment to review this curriculum after use. We hope you find this useful in your classroom! Thank you!
