How to play… –Don’t play like Jeo_ _ _ _ y. –Class should be divided into several small groups. –Groups should use science journal (red slide notes), homework, and other available materials to assist you. –Groups can communicate quietly with each other but no sharing answers between groups. Practice quietly communicating right now? Practice Communication Question: Your group gets to order one pizza, and you can have two toppings. What does your group want?
Questions 1-20 = 5pts Each Final Category (Bonus) = 1pt Each Final Questions = 5 pt wager If you wager 5 on the last question and get it wrong you lose 5 pts. Wager 5 and get it right you get 5 pts. Find the Owl = Secretly write “Owl” in the correct box worth 1pt. “I’ll be about this big.”
This PowerPoint is one small part of my Taxonomy and Classification Unit. This unit includes… An 11 Part 8,000+ Slide PowerPoint full of engaging activities, critical class notes, review opportunities, question, answers, games, and much more. 32 Page bundled homework that chronologically follows the slideshow for nightly review. Modified version provided as well as answer keys. 31 pages of unit notes with visuals for students and support professionals. 5 PowerPoint Review Games with Answer Keys Rubrics, follow along worksheets, projects, video and academic links, templates, materials list, First Day PowerPoint, guide, and much more.
