Product Description
This interactive and engaging lesson is a complete resource to introduce your students to The Solar System. It is important for students to master these concepts to improve their Science knowledge to ensure success in the future.

This lesson is a PowerPoint file to be played as a slideshow for your students. There are several pages of activities and questions to keep students engaged and participating in the lesson. Because there are questions and answers on multiple slides, this PowerPoint has been equipped with clickable animations so that the answers are not shown right after the questions are asked.

For example: With one click of the mouse, the question is displayed. The students have as much time to think of answers and responses as necessary. With another click of the mouse, the answer is revealed underneath the question.

This is a great way to have students involved in their learning, and it is also a quick and easy assessment as you progress through the lesson.
