This "Humans and the Environment Complete Unit Bundle" includes everything you need to teach a unit on "Human Impact on the Environment" to your life science or biology students. The bundle contains a 72-slide PowerPoint presentation, lecture notes for the teacher, a guided notes outline for the students, lab activity, water and energy use conservation activity, set of 55 task cards, crossword puzzle, two homework assignments, set of 2 quizzes, a test prep/review question PowerPoint, and final unit test.
A Teacher Guide containing tips for implementing the resources, suggestions for sequencing, and alignment to NGSS standards is also included.
I have included each product in an editable format, and I have also included each product in PDF form. Each of these products is sold separately in my TpT store, but buying the entire unit in one download will save you money. If each of these resources were purchased separately, the total cost would be $33.49. The complete bundle of resources is $24.99, a savings of 25%.
