The following Powerpoint is used as a complete teaching unit plan. This is a comprehensive unit with 84 slides that took me over 8 hours to complete. This is what I use in my class and has been very successful. There are many interactive sites, standard-based information, and links to resources/videos. This can take 2-3 weeks to complete or you can fast-track the learning into a week; lots of information and resources!
