Better Biology is pleased to offer this resource for the first day of biology class where both introductions, class tone and learning will occur. This beautiful slide set will engage new students right from the start. Included is a linked doc, which goes along with one slide, entitled "All About You" - a questionnaire that prompt students to consider aspects of themselves as they gain trust from day one about their future learning in biology class. Slides that follow prompt students to discuss "If biology is the study of life....then what IS life?", which dovetails with a facilitated activity and whole class discussion where students are involved and create their learning.
Please see the 'preview' to see details and graphics included on the slides.
The first slide provides a link to the doc for easy editing and customization.
