    Google Classroom and Exit Ticket

    • This resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates with Google Classroom. Included is a link that with one click, will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive.
    • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students
    • On the last Google Slide of each lesson is a link to a four-question Exit Ticket that you can give as homework or to conclude your lesson in class.
    • This lesson includes both Google and Office versions for ALL resources. The presentation is in Google Slides and PowerPoint while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.

    Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It also allows you, as well as your students, to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

    **Plus: Included with your purchase is a complimentary bonus activity which will extend your students learning and understanding**

    To go along with this resource, I've created a day-by-day walkthrough as I work my way through the unit - CLICK HERE to follow my progress.


    Buyer Comments:

    - "Perfect for my blended-learning class! Students really responded well to this style of lesson."

    - "Very detailed. I have used the assignments and they were a hit!"

    - "saved me so much time!"

    - "Made lesson planning a whole lot easier!!!"


    Digital and Distance Learning:

    Each lesson is fully digital which makes it perfect for the classroom, distance learning, or as a sub-plan if needed. With a single click, the entire package will be imported into your Google Drive and will be ready to assign to your students or present in class. You can also place a copy of the resources directly into student Google Drive accounts for easy access.

    Exit Tickets can be directly accessed from the last Google Slide in each presentation. Additionally, your purchase will create a copy of the Google Form Exit Ticket which you can edit to meet your class needs.

    Student Version:

    The student version of each lesson contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout. 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.

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. Emphasis is on tracing movement of matter and flow of energy. Assessment does not include the biochemical mechanisms of photosynthesis.
    Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment. Examples of the design process include examining human environmental impacts, assessing the kinds of solutions that are feasible, and designing and evaluating solutions that could reduce that impact. Examples of human impacts can include water usage (such as the withdrawal of water from streams and aquifers or the construction of dams and levees), land usage (such as urban development, agriculture, or the removal of wetlands), and pollution (such as of the air, water, or land).
    Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems. Examples of evidence include grade-appropriate databases on human populations and the rates of consumption of food and natural resources (such as freshwater, mineral, and energy). Examples of impacts can include changes to the appearance, composition, and structure of Earth’s systems as well as the rates at which they change. The consequences of increases in human populations and consumption of natural resources are described by science, but science does not make the decisions for the actions society takes.
    Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century. Examples of factors include human activities (such as fossil fuel combustion, cement production, and agricultural activity) and natural processes (such as changes in incoming solar radiation or volcanic activity). Examples of evidence can include tables, graphs, and maps of global and regional temperatures, atmospheric levels of gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, and the rates of human activities. Emphasis is on the major role that human activities play in causing the rise in global temperatures.
    Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem. Emphasis is on cause and effect relationships between resources and growth of individual organisms and the numbers of organisms in ecosystems during periods of abundant and scarce resources.
