1 Classroom License to use all of the units on all of your schools computers.

10 Science Units that contain over 30,000+ well crafted PowerPoint slides full of lab activities, important class notes, project ideas, discussion opportunities, review challenges, amazing visuals, videos, and much more.

10 Bundled homework packages (word documents) / assessment that chronologically follow the above PowerPoint slideshows. These assessments are extremely challenging but not overwhelming.

10 Answer Keys to the above assessments (.doc). These are great for teachers, support staff, and homeschool parents.

20 Modified homework packages (.doc) / assessments that look much like the above assessment but are less challenging. These are helpful and a nice starting place for students who may require individual modificaitons. Answer Keys to these modified assessments are also included for support professionals.

10 Sets of unit notes (.doc) that chronologically follow the PowerPoint slideshows. These notes are full of detailed visuals and chronologically follow the slideshow. These are great for support professionals and for students who may require accommodations.

25 PowerPoint Review Games (.ppt) with each review game equaling 125+ slides. These are great chances to review and get students searching through their science journal, collaborating with others, and are always a lot of fun.

Hundreds of video and academic links. These links are to video shorts that usually range from 2 - 7 minutes or great websites that help review class material. Having a short video to help reinforce / review classroom topics is extremely helpful. Many of the video links are to YouTube so be aware if your school blocks that website. You can always download the videos from home the night before and then bring them in. Also be advised that some videos may have some short ads before them. This is not something I can control as the internet is always changing.

Hundreds of pages of handouts, readings, answer keys to the readings, information sheets, rubrics, templates, lab activities, recipes, and much more.

1 First Day PowerPoint Presentation (210 slides) and goal setting / build a coat of arms activity. Also included is a student guidebook that explains the entire four year science curriculum and classroom expectations and coat of arms first day activity and PowerPoint.

All units arrive in editable format so they can be altered to fit your curriculum, grade level, or ability grouping. You can decide to make them more or less challenging.
