Buyer Comments: "Very helpful for my science classes"
"Kids really like this unit"
"Big help with explain more about electricity. Allowed myself to cover the subject more fully."
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.
