Electronic Slideshows

These slideshows help teachers discuss key elements of the "Electronic Textbooks."  They can be used in elementary to college.  These can be used with internet shared presentations.  Students can review materials at home, so they better understand the lectures. The slideshows are part of our field trips, including 3 hands on activities if you visit the Children's Natural History Museum in Fremont.
