Multimedia SCIENCE Lessons for Interactive Whiteboards
The Perfect Complement to Any Earth Science Curriculum!
Each title contains a comprehensive array of multimedia lessons and activities. Designed for multisensory learning, they’re the perfect resource for Interactive Whiteboards. And the lessons are also ideal for individual student instruction on any computer!
- Virtual Lab Investigation is included with each title, allowing students to experiment, perform simulations and draw conclusions.
- Custom Tool Bar allows users to draw, write, and add arrows and text blocks to customize the lessons by adding additional details to any screen.
Each multimedia lesson consists of the following 5 Modules along with a digital, inquiry-based Student Activity Guide:
Consists of a series of narrated, visual presentations – each featuring highly-detailed graphics and illuminating animations.
Includes a variety of interactive activities, a virtual lab investigation and a Lab Activity Guide. You’ll engage your students in inquiry-based learning, allowing them to apply the knowledge gained in other modules. They can also begin to build a foundation of knowledge and understanding of the key concepts using process skills to perform a Virtual Lab Investigation.
Provides additional images as well as the individual graphics from the Lesson Presentation module. Allows you to teach “free-style” by customizing the presentation, explain concepts in more depth or highlight specific information through use of the arrows, text or callouts provided with the Custom Tool Bar.
Features an illustrated view of key vocabulary, allowing you to choose any of the terms along with their corresponding images and definitions. Show or hide the definition to challenge your class or play audio of the terms/definitions to promote vocabulary development.
Consists of a series of assessment/review questions that can be 1. Graded at the end of the assessment (Quiz Mode), 2. Used in a non-graded format for instant feedback (Practice Mode), or 3. Provided in “play” mode for use by competing teams (Play Mode). Question types include multiple-choice, true/false, fill-in the blank, and matching.
