Reviewer Comments:

In this resource, the file name does not include a “.” (ecojeopardyppt), so the user may have difficulty downloading the file, and may need to save it first, then open it through the PowerPoint program. This PowerPoint is organized well and would be very engaging for students in a science classroom. The content of the presentation is intended for grades 6 – 10, although the Curriki Review Team feels this resource might be best used with slightly younger students. While the questions touch on a variety of ecology topics, some of the questions are unclear or trivial. However, it would be easy for a teacher to modify the content of the questions and answers to meet the needs of a particular classroom, adapting it for different grade levels and subject areas. Teachers should print out the “slides with notes” to use as an answer key, since the answers themselves do not show up on the presentation.

I was able to upload a replacement file that includes the file extension. I hope this helps!
