The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

Within my Matter Mini Unit I have the following lessons.

- Lesson 1 - Matter

- Lesson 2 - Density

- Lesson 3 - Mass vs. Weight
