Buyer Comments: "Great slideshow! I wish I had known that there were other ecology slideshows before I purchased this one so that I could get the bundle."

"I have purchased several items from this seller. Fantastic items!!! They are always my favorite purchases."

"Use it last school year. Just right for my teaching and my student's learning needs."

"This was very informative and helped with some of the vocabulary words the students were struggling with!" "A+!"

"Loved the ppt. It was the perfect way to into/reinforce my life science unit. It helped the students with their understanding of a difficult issue."

"Great intro lesson to ecosystems and ecology. Loved the student note to keep the students paying attention"

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