Unit I “Science Skills” contains four comprehensive PowerPoint lessons; three review programs with printable color PDF worksheets; four student PPT note guides; a unit vocabulary sheet; numerous student worksheets and activities (PDF and in flipcharts); quizzes, online practice quizzes and a unit assessment with multiple choice, matching, true/false questions in Word and PDF with answer keys.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and at least two links to short videos for each lesson to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject. A class activity is included at the end of each lesson and an interactive quiz/review at Kahoot.it and Quizizz.com are also included as links in the last slide. Kahoot and Quizizz reviews are a fun way to compliment the PowerPoint lessons and to help check for student understanding.
Individual lessons/programs (not assessments) can also be found separately in the AstronomyDad store.
