Energy PPT: This is a 226 slide PPT covering an entire Energy unit. This is specifically tied to North Carolina Essential Standards, or NC Essential Standards for 6th grade. The PPT is designed to cover in detail the unpacked standards but would work with many Energy Units.
This ENTIRE PPT, along with many other great things, is included in my Energy Bundle, check it out before purchasing this product. It is a much better value!
The unit covers:
