Product Description
This quick-paced, straightforward, and engaging PowerPoint about ozone is sure to keep your students interested and part of the class discussion. This PowerPoint boasts dozens of original animations, smooth transitions, and a healthy dose of humor scattered over nearly 150 slides. The PowerPoint follows the general flow listed below:

1. How did we get an ozone layer? (slides 1 – 38)

2. Why do we need an ozone layer / what does it do for us? (slides 29 - 51)

3. What is the ozone layer? (slides 44 – 45)

4. What is “good ozone” and what is “bad ozone”? (slides 53 – 86) (including an action packed scene with a copy machine)

5. What are CFC’s and how do they affect the ozone layer? (slides 87 – 107)

6. What are the consequences of less or no ozone? (slides 108 – 119)

7. What are “ozone holes”? (slides 120 – 122)

8. When did we realize the problem and what have we done? (slides 123 – 150)

As mentioned above the PowerPoint is pretty fast-paced and I usually cover it in a 45 minute class period. This presentation is not designed for a “stop-and-go” format – in other words, view a slide, stop and take notes, move on, rinse, repeat. Included with the PowerPoint is a student note sheet (more of an after-the-fact Q and A) that students can fill out together afterwards to reinforce the material learned. I have included both a blank copy and a filled in version of the notes. Also included is a teacher's guide to help guide you in best using the PowerPoint in your own classroom (i.e. how I tend to present each slide and use the resources included).

My students love this PowerPoint, and so will you and yours, but you don't have to take my word for it - download the free preview version now to get an idea of what to expect. Just remember, the real deal is much larger and much more detailed, with nearly 150 slides. Included in the full version of this download are the following documents:

1. The Story of Ozone PowerPoint
2. The Story of Ozone Teacher Guide
3. The Story of Ozone Notes (Blank)
4. The Story of Ozone Notes (Filled In)

I hope that both you and your students enjoy your download. I am positive that it will be helpful in your classroom. Please be sure to leave feedback so that others can know what a great product this is, and be sure to become a fan and follow me so that you can get information on future releases.

Note: Yes there are actually 100 copies that come out of the copy machine on slide 73. I’ve never had a class not ask me if it really made 100 copies and which didn’t then insist on counting every last one. Indulge them and count together : ) It’s fun.
