What ARe We making with Powerpoint?
For the next few weeks, we will be using PowerPoint to create a presentation about ourselves. Your goal will be to teach your class about yourself. This is your chance to show your classmates who you are. Your slideshow will include:
1. One title slide
2. one List Slide about your people!
3. Three slides about your favorite things in life!
4. One closing slide.
Take a look at examples below, but be aware that creating the PowerPoint slideshow was only half of the project. Students still had to prepare to speak in front of the class while they presented their slides.
Slide #1: Title Slide
