The enclosed materials compose a complete Middle Level Physical Science course with individual units that have been used in my classroom. The PowerPoints and diverse collection of learning materials contain more than 380 pages of materials and over 480 PowerPoint slides. Many of the units were part of the Physical Science component tested on the Intermediate Level Science Exam in New York State, but additional materials have been added to make these materials useful in designing a full year course. 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. Many units contain one or more lab activities, homework assignments and/or projects, review quizzes for students and additional quizzes to be used by the teacher.
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. Many 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 $26 for these materials.
This year long course contains the following units. Please click on the links to each individual unit to view specific details about each unit.
