The Spheres of the Earth Lesson. This package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), a Bill Nye video embedded right into the PowerPoint (includes a direct video link and answer key) and a student lesson handout as a word document. The PowerPoint is fun and applicable.
Included in the lesson package is:
– The teacher version of the PowerPoint
– The student version of the PowerPoint
– Bill Nye Video embedded into the PowerPoint with worksheet (includes direct video link and answer key)
– Student worksheet

In order, the lesson covers:

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.

I also have a range of assignments and lessons/units from other grade levels at my store.
