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. 

Technical Remarks:

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!
