I first need to mention that when I downloaded the PowerPoint a message stated "PowerPoint found a problem with content in foodchain.odp. PowerPoint can attempt to repair the presentaion," I am telling you this because in the repair I may miss somethings you had in your PowerPoint. You mentioned this was for grade school, I was wondering what grade level was this geared to? I found the presentation had a lot of information but maybe needing some links to various internet sites showing or explaining food chains. You may also want to add some contrasting color to your quiz section.
I know my students using the back button to re-read the information or make connections with the two slides. You may think of adding these. Adding sound and as I said above, color contract would make the presentation fun to read. I liked your pictures of the cylces in the beginning of the show!

As a biology teacher myself, I know that food chains are an important part of the curriculum. Your presentation was easy to navigate through and all of the action buttons worked well. I liked how you had a lot of pictures on the opening slides to help students connect the vocab terms to a visual. This fits well into the UDL guidelines that address vocabulary and syntax. I would have liked to see a few more visuals, or perhaps a link to outside sites somewhere in the presentation. I know there are interactive food chain sites that students might enjoy working with and it would allow them to interact with the material in a different way. I am curious about what grade level this presentation was designed for. Nice work!
