Today we will:
1. Read through and discuss the project.
2. Go through a basic tutorial.
3. Create first two slides for our project.
What is PowerPOint?
PowerPoint is a slideshow creation tool. It is very popular. It is used as a visual aid for live (in person) presentations. PowerPoint slideshows are also published online. There are other slideshow programs - for example, Apple machines run Keynote.
Below is a picture of the main parts of PowerPoint
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
This video shows how to create a title slide!
Slide #2: List Slide about your People
Today we will all take part in a performance of Drew Daywalt's Crayon books - "The Day The Crayons Quit" and "The Day the Crayons Came Home". You will each play the the part of one crayon and read that crayon's part in the story.
Speaking in front of people is a very important life skill...and it isn't easy for all of us - myself included. But each time you do it you will improve. Today, I am looking for two things.
1. Volume! We must be able to hear you, and that - especially in the media center - means using your OUTSIDE VOICE, your quarterback's voice, your big boy/ big girl voice.
2. Attitude! These crayons have attitude - they have things to say to their owner and you need to get the message across!
1. First, using trial and error - also called iteration - use blockly code to move your Sphero Bolt from one maze box to another.
2. Once solved, add lights, matrix animations, scrolling text, or your own special code to make your program unique.
3. Next, film your success with one of our cameras!
4. If time allows, trade mazes with another team.
