PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 41 slide PowerPoint is a great introduction to or review of basic science process skills. I use it every year to review science process skills at the beginning of the year before beginning any content. I find that it gets student’s thinking like scientists. I refer back to it and expand on it as the year progresses. The colorful slides with the fun clipart from Phil Martin help the students remain engaged.
 
The presentation is meant to be interactive. It contains opportunities for students to think-pair-share, review, and clarify before moving on to the next topic. A corresponding vocabulary organizer can be downloaded from my store for free. I have included the presentation in both pdf and powerpoint format so that you can edit it. Please note that the fonts may look different in powerpoint on your computer if you do not have the fonts I used. That is why I also provided it in a pdf format that you can use with the students just like you would a powerpoint.
