Presentation (Powerpoint) File
Be sure that you have an application to open this file type before downloading and/or purchasing.
This is a really great product, very, very comprehensive, and can be used as several different lectures, one really long lecture (Anyone, anyone? Bueller?) or buy it today for your flipped classroom tomorrow. This very long PowerPoint is divided into 6 sections that build upon each other, each with a pre and post test to enhance viewer engagement. I use a graphic organizers throughout the PPT to enable the viewers to connect the content to previously learned content. The 6 sections are:
2. Sargasso Sea
3. Southern boundary currents (equatorial currents)
4. Western boundary currents
5. Northern boundary currents
6. Eastern boundary currents
Just know this 69 slide PPT is jam packed with organized sequential information to teach your kids MANY ways how ocean currents will influence the abundance and distribution of ocean life. See for yourself I've included the whole file in an uploaded video (it just goes very fast so use the pause button as needed). I also included uploaded thumbnails, too.
In this PPT I use data from scientific sources only, such as ocearch.org, and scholarly journal articles (all with embedded links so you, or your kids, can read the articles, too). All graphics used in the PPT come from NOAA, MBARI, or University research.
*I indicated that this PPT would be used for 1 week of class, which is true, but you'd need to supplement this with other things or activities over that week of learning. I just do not think it's a good idea to have a 69 slide presentation in 80 minutes and call it a day!
Nutrients, phytoplankton, gyre, the 4 boundary currents listed above, sargassum seaweed, adapted, pelagic, coccolithophores, eddies, equatorial regions, coastal upwelling, migrations, plankton blooms, and Canary current.
