- "Great resource. Covers the topic well. Thank you."
- "Great info! The kids enjoyed it! Loved the videos within :)"
The student version of the power point 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.
