This is a 700 slide PowerPoint presentation with built-in class notes (red slides), built-in activities with directions, challenge questions with answers, built-in quizzes, video links, projects, several page homework, answer key, many pages of lesson notes, class worksheets that follow slideshow, PowerPoint Review Game (150+ slides each) with answers, built-in quiz, and much more.
Part 1 Electricity
This PowerPoint begins describing what our world would be like if we didn't harness electricity. The PowerPoint then describes the difficulties of defining electricity as it is a conglomeration of many definitions. Electricity is then related to charges in a series of slides. A brief review of atoms, with a focus on charged particles follows. Lightning is then described and a series of static electricity demonstrations follow. Electric Fields are then presented and a series of challenge questions has the students arrange slides so that the opposite charges attract, and the same charges repel. Many neat links are provided that lets the teacher connect to pHet simulators. A series of static charge demonstrations follow with visuals and arrows describing charge. These involve balloons and strings. How a Van deGraaff works is described, and many experiments are described with explanations. If you are unfamiliar or uncomfortable using a Van deGraaff or do not have one just skip these activities. Coulomb's Law is then described over a series of slides. A couple of neat questions to the class with visuals show a Faraday Cage. Current and Conductors of electricity are described, as well as semi-conductors. All of these are accompanied with visuals. An activity if you have a conductivity meter is described where students search the room for what they think will conduct electricity and which will not. The two types of electrical current (AC / DC) are described over a series of slides. A silent quiz follows where the teacher (Optional) plays AC/DC and points to students to go up to the board (Rocking it out hopefully) and touches the appliance that represents AC, and which represents DC. The activity lasts about as long one rock song. Watt's are covered next and a few word problems with answers are included. Amperes and resistance are covered, and symbols to build a circuit. Students then design a simple circuit, batteries are passed out and the students build a circuit. Questions with answers follow. (A basic class set for circuit building is needed here) Typical AC outlets are shown.
Part 2 Magnetism
(Magnetism is then described again with a review of magnets. An activity with magnets and iron fillings is presented with directions to create a magnetic field with the help of some white paper. The Earth's EM field is described. An activity on how to use a compass is also included with visuals and step by step directions. A neat lab activity has students construct simple electrical motors using some 22 gauge wire, paper clips, D battery, sharpie marker, and some wire with clamps. Directions, visual of set-up, questions, and answers are provided. Faraday's Law is described in a sequence of slides and directions are included for students to build their own electromagnets from copper wire, a nail, and batteries. This is a really neat PowerPoint full of activities. If you can't conduct all of the activities, explanations are always presented at the end. Please see the entire unit that this PowerPoint is a part of described below before purchase.
This PowerPoint includes critical notes (Red Slides), exciting visuals, challenge questions, activities with directions and more. Text is usually placed at the top of the slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. Color coded slides, as well as a shade technique is used to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. These PowerPoints are meant to be interactive as possible and ask many questions, provides built in review opportunities, explains directions to activities, and much more. Transition effects are never used.
