Text on the unit PowerPoint is in large print (32 font) and is placed at the top of each slide so it can seen and read from all angles of a classroom. A shade technique, as well as color coding text helps to increase student focus and allows teacher to control the pace of the lesson. Also included is a 11 page assessment / bundled homework that chronologically follows the slideshow for nightly homework and the end of the unit assessment, as well as a 8 page modified assessment. 15 pages of class notes with images are also included for students who require assistance, as well as answer keys to both assessments / homework for support professionals, teachers, and home school parents. 38 video shorts (.flv files) are provided and a slide within the slideshow cues teacher / parent when the videos are most relevant to play. Video shorts usually range from 2-7 minutes and are included in organized folders. Two PowerPoint review games are included (100+ slides each). Answers to the PowerPoint Review Games are also provided in PowerPoint form so students can self-assess. Lastly, several class games such as guess the hidden picture beneath the boxes, and the find the hidden owl somewhere within the slideshow are provided. Difficulty rating 7/10. Duration = 7+ Weeks.
