I am going to be teaching the Communications MB and I was wondering if anyone has developed any teaching aides (Power Point slides etc.)

Think Active Teaching, Active Listening, and Active Learning. Power Point slides promote boring teaching, passive learning and misbehavior.

Keep ypur group small and all volunteers. Emphasize role playing. Read stories and have them repeat key events of the story. Sell BSA Popcorn. Record a town council meeting and critique it.

Communication can be a fun badge. Think in terms of communicating with body language. Way of communicating without words. The kids get so much teaching sitting and looking at power point programs in school try not to turn badge work into school work.
your community is a tree. You are either a leaf that feeds it or mistletoe that suckes it dry. Be sure you are always a leaf.

what you can do is make up your own worksheets to the way you want it, then handing it out to the scouts making it easier for you and them
