Animal Kingdom: Vertebrates PowerPoint and Notes
Over 70 slides with beautiful pictures PLUS 3 versions of differentiated notes are included in this product. I designed this presentation for a general high school Biology class, but the content is appropriate for most students in grades 7-10. And, since it’s editable, you can customize it for your class by removing, rearranging or adding slides.

This download includes 8 files:
1. Read This First includes product overview, contact information, terms of use and image credits.
2. PowerPoint presentation with stunning photographs and easy to follow diagrams. Students will not be overwhelmed with wordy slides and you will be able to check for understanding with the "Turtle Time" slides embedded throughout the presentation that quiz students on what they have just learned. Additional notes explaining diagrams, concepts, background information, and instructional suggestions are included and can be printed separately or viewed in PowerPoint’s “Notes Page” view or “Presenter View” mode.

Notes: THREE versions of editable student and teacher notes so you can easily differentiate to meet the needs of your students.

3. Version A notes are set up so that the numbered notes correspond with the slides of the PowerPoint. This makes it easier for students to stay on pace with the lecture.
4. Version A Answer Key for Teachers
5. Version B notes are designed in a more traditional style; students will use information presented in the PowerPoint to fill in appropriate information.
6. Version B Answer Key for Teachers
7. Version C notes are fill-in-the-blank style notes that are coordinated with the PowerPoint, but could also be used for students who are absent during the presentation since it could be completed with a textbook or online resources. This version can work well as a quiz or worksheet.
