3rd/4th Grade Ocean Animal Presentations

    The 3rd/4th Graders have begun working on creating PowerPoint Presentations for a ocean animal of their choice. It is a project that has me, and I hope a few of the students, pretty excited! Right now we are in the first step of our project... research. Each student has chosen a sea animal they wish to learn more about. They have been given Outlines that not only show how their PowerPoints need to be constructed & organized, but also to show them what information they need to find. 

    Next we will begin setting up our PowerPoints. For this we use Google Slides, Googles alternative to Microsoft's PowerPoint. (For the past few years we have been trying to integrate Google into our school. Each student in our district has a Google account through our school. This makes it easier for students to access their files from our computer labs, Chromebooks, or home devices. Most students know their own login information.) Once we get our information & images organized we will begin revising & editing. Followed by tons of practice, practice, practice!

    Then onto the final step... Presenting. The Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade have graciously accepted our invitation to be our audience as we take 4 sessions to present our findings. 

    I have had a couple of students working on this project at home! If that is, or becomes, the case for your child, but they don't have their outline or folders, here is all they'll need for working at home. Oh and a piece of scratch paper for their notes.
