The enclosed materials compose a complete unit in Middle Level Earth Science (grades 4-8) with individual units that were used in my classroom for many years. The PowerPoints and diverse collection of learning materials contain more than 305 pages of materials and over 351 PowerPoint slides. Many of the units were part of the Intermediate Science curriculum taught in New York State but contain additional materials beyond this portion of the curriculum. It is my goal to provide many useful materials in this package to allow the creation or enhancement of design for any Earth Science course in grades 4-8. The PowerPoints and cloze notes associated with the individual units will allow you to implement your instruction in clear and methodical manner.
All units come with a PowerPoint with associated cloze notes. Each unit also contains the learning goals for the unit, as well as a final evaluation. These units also contain one or more lab activities, homework assignments and/or projects, quizzes and examinations and other materials to be used by the teacher. The units contain Marzano learning goals and have been correlated to the NGSS and Common Core learning standards. The materials can be easily edited for use with smartboard technology.
You can use the entire contents of this zip file to create a new or improved course, or pick and choose the lessons you want to teach and apply to your own curriculum as you see fit. Most of the files are very editable to your needs.
If the contents of this complete course were purchased as individual zip files for each unit, it would cost more than $17 for these materials. I am offering them in this package for $10.99 which provides a greater than 40% savings.
This year long course contains the following units. Please click on the links to each individual unit to view specific details about each unit.
