49 lesson openers for your powerpoint needs!
A collection of DO NOW activities for biology lessons (age range 11 to 14, though it can work for some GCSE lessons too).
A DO NOW is any activity that you have at the very beginning of class that helps you set the tone for that day.
The powerpoint is fully linked to a menu and animated where appropriate. It's very much a download-and-use resource.
There is a rationale slide and how to use/things to avoid slide as well.
