Scientific Method, Skills, and Safety. This 6-8 day lesson package includes four lessons (student and teacher versions of the presentations), a Unit Test, 6 worksheets, and a student lesson handout as a document. This lesson package is meant for an introduction or review of the scientific method, science skills, and lab safety and can be used for any grade level.
- This unit includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentations are in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
- Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
- Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students
Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.
Included in the lesson package is:
- Google and Office versions of the lesson
- The teacher version of the PowerPoint
- The student version of the PowerPoint
- 4 videos embedded into the PowerPoint
- 6 student worksheets
- 3 additional handouts
- Student lesson handout

The student versions of the presentations contain multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout. 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.
