Here is a FREE teaching resource for you!
At the end of each school year, I evaluate the units and materials I used in my teaching during the course of the year. One of my summer projects is always the same ..... Improve the weakest part of my curriculum!!
This summer I am working on my materials on "ecology and the environment". As you can tell by my previous posts, I have completely revamped all of my teaching PowerPoints on ecology. In response to changing the core material that I teach during this unit, I am also making changes in the supplementary materials that I use to support my lectures.
I love crossword puzzles as a teaching and reviewing tool. They are wonderful in hammering down key concepts, and it doesn't hurt to have reinforcement in spelling, either! I have written one crossword puzzle for each of my ecology units:
1. Introduction to Ecology
2. Population Ecology
3. Community Ecology
4. Ecosystems and the Biosphere Part 1: Energy Flow and the Recycling of Matter
5. Ecosystems and the Biosphere Part 2: Biomes of the World
6. Humans and the Environment.
I have posted the complete set of 6 puzzles in my TeachersPayTeachers store as a FREE item. I hope that you will take advantage of the free download and that you find them helpful in your teaching.
Have Fun Teaching!
