Dorling Kindersley BooksPowerPoint Library

Brush up on your knowledge of history and earth, life, and physical sciences with these beautifully illustrated PowerPoint presentations. Print or project any PowerPoint presentation on an interactive whiteboard to enhance a classroom science or social studies lesson. We created these PowerPoint presentations as part of our mini-lessons on the same topic. These lessons are meant to motivate students using illustrated reference materials focused on key science and social studies concepts, plus accompanying worksheets, writing activities, and discussion tips.

Bullying Prevention Month
October is Bullying Prevention Month, and it's a crucial topic for teachers and administrators to address. Bullying can cause both physical and emotional harm, and it can range from inflicting physical abuse to cyber-bullying (the use of cell phones, social networking sites, and other forms of technology to cause emotional distress). Learn how to recognize several forms of bullying and teasing, and discover effective techniques for dealing with and preventing bullying in your classroom.

Happy Halloween! Kids love this holiday and all the spooky decorations, games, and stories that go along with it. (Not to mention the candy, of course!) Take advantage of their enthusiasm with classroom connections and fun activities.
