This unit consists of a 3500+ slide PowerPoint, 14 page bundled homework package /assessment (I'll send it again to you), and class notes that are the road map for an exciting and interactive unit full of lab activities, challenge questions, discussion questions, project ideas, assessments, modified assessment, class notes, review games, answer keys, video links, and much more.
Also included is a student version of the unit that is much like the teachers but missing the answer keys, quizzes, PowerPoint review games, hidden box challenges, owl, and surprises meant for the classroom. This is a great resource to distribute to your students and support professionals.
The Matter,Energy and the Environment Unit covers science topics associated with Matter, Phase Change, Gas Laws, Energy, Magnetism, EM Spectrum, Electricity, Thermodynamics, and Environmental Issues. (See list below for more topics covered.
Text for the Unit PowerPoint is presented in large print (32 font) and is placed at the top of each slide so it can seen and read from all angles of a classroom. A shade technique as well as color coding text helps to increase student focus and allows teacher to control the pace of the lesson.

Video links usually range from 2-7 minutes. Three PowerPoint review games are included (125+ slides each). Answers to the PowerPoint review games are provided in PowerPoint form so students can self-assess. Lastly, several class games such as guess the hidden picture beneath the boxes, and the find the hidden owl somewhere within the slideshow are provided. Difficulty rating of 8 (Ten is most difficult).
