Topic/terms included: ecology, ecosystem, biotic factors, abiotic factors, how organisms interact with their environment, the water cycle, evaporation, condensation, the carbon cycle, photosynthesis, respiration, producer, consumer, scavenger, decomposer, the food chain, and the food web.
This is a 90 slide presentation that is packed with information. The first half is instructional and the second half is a review.
The presentation itself covers the topics listed, but it also gives many examples of interactions that happen within an ecosystem. It is interactive and allows for partner discussions. There are several charts included to illustrate the cycles and interactions of an ecosystem. There are many picures and all of the slides have entrance animations with sound effects to keep your students' attention.
There are hyperlinks so that you can skip to a particular section if needed. I have an opening slide set up with a Sound and Movie link. There is a link to three simple steps that will allow you to add music to this opening slide. This is very simple to do and really gets students' attention.
The review is a collection of multiple-choice questions and questions in which students must identify organisms as producer, consumer, or decomposer. All review questions are interactive.
I also have a review sheet and TEST that go with this PowerPoint. To view them, click the link below.
