This .zip file contains planning materials for middle school unit on the Interactions of Life (Ecology). The unit was designed for 6th graders in NYC.
1 unit calendar including daily teaching goals (the preview image is an EXAMPLE, the real file has all days filled in)
1 planning document including possible essential questions, New York State standards, project ideas and additional SWBATs.
1 SMARTboard .notebook lesson presentation to introduce the unit (11 slides) including numerous video links.
2 homework assignments
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentations include links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
'Ask a question' if you need a PowerPoint file instead of what is provided, and I can probably re-upload everything with an adjusted file.
