Product Description
This is a 350 slide PowerPoint presentation with built-in class notes (red slides), built in hands-on activities with directions, questions, one page homework, answer key, lesson notes, video links, and much more.

This PowerPoint teaches some basics about fish and goes into extreme detail (incredibly fun as well) about the parts / design of fish. This PowerPoint begins showing the incredible diversity of fish by presenting the largest fish (Whale Shark) and the smallest fish (Paedocypris progenetica). A description of fish follow in a step by step slide sequence only having a bit of text and mostly images. Everything in the PowerPoint is one step at a time. These are red slides which mean they are important. A series of challenge questions have students determine which picture is a bony fish vs. a cartilage fish. Students then see a mystery box and are told that they will be getting a fish and will need to draw it. Each student is then given a Swedish Fish (Common gummy candy) and asked to draw it in their journal / notebook. A step by step sequence of slides then labels the parts of the Swedish Fish (Example - Dorsal Fin, Pectoral Fin). A more advanced slide follows showing more parts to a fish. A link to a great activity called "Fashion a Fish" is provided which has the students design a fish with many different types of body structures, behaviors, colors, and reproductive strategies. Students then see slides of different styles of fish mouths. Each type of fish mouth connects to an image that helps them grasp the information. Example,- Sucker Mouths have a picture of a Lollipop, and Extremely Large Jaws has a picture of Steven Tyler. At the end of each mouth type, body shape, reproductive strategy, and color, students are challenged to connect the fish part/strategy to the correct picture. This process gets really interesting at the end when a fish is put in the middle of 30 pictures and students start making many connections. The answers are provided every step of the way. This entire PowerPoint gets students ready to "Fashion their own Fish" on a poster board. Their fish that they create and label has a certain mouth type modeled after real fish, shape, reproductive strategy, and coloration. This is one of the neatest PowerPoints in my entire collection. You will never find a PowerPoint as bizarre and interesting / educational as this one. My students really enjoy this entire unit from beginning to end. Presenting the cool fish at the end is always exciting. Please see my entire Rivers, Lakes, and Water Quality Unit described below before purchasing this PowerPoint.

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 PowerPoint's are meant to be as interactive as possible and ask many questions, provide built-in opportunity to review material, explain directions to activities, and much more. Transition effects are never used.
