Frequently Asked Questions

1) Do I need google slides to use this file?

Yes, this is a google slides file, and to be interactive, you will need to use this on google slides. However, I have carefully designed these slides to be easily printed. Printability helps if it is required or preferred by students and their families. This makes them easily adaptable to a variety of learning environments.

2) I already own your inquiry units. Do I need to purchase this?

This is a product that is a wholly adapted file. While covering the same curriculum expectations, the format of the activities has been completely altered to meet the needs of a 100% digital environment. My inquiry units are designed for an in-class experience while these are not. Raising the price of my original units to include these new additions was not something I was comfortable doing. I also realized that under normal circumstances, not every teacher would want to pay a premium for the digital file included in the original inquiry unit.

3) Are there lesson plans?

No, there are no lesson plans included in this product. There are detailed instructions overlayed on each slide to help both the teacher and the student. This way, students know what to do on each page. These instruction boxes and 100% editable and can be changed to suit each teacher’s needs.

4) Is this for French Immersion?

No, this is not for French immersion and is unable to be edited to meet the needs of a French program. Unfortunately, Madly Learning Inc. does not provide French language resources.

5) Will this work for my special education students

Yes, all significant readings within this document are linked as PDF documents that will allow for screen reader software to be used. There are also a wide variety of activities such as readings, videos, and hands-on tasks that there are multiple opportunities for students to succeed at a variety of levels.
