Teachers looking to integrate technology skills and content areas with love this review of PowerPoint/Google Slides skills for students with the topic of Rocks and Minerals. While this is a simple research project, the real goal of this activity is for students to put their notes into a Presentation template (using either Google Slides or PowerPoint) and make it look professional.
Students should already be familiar with the presentation program (either Google Slides or PowerPoint) that you want them to use. Otherwise, plan a demo of the skills they will need because this resource doesn’t include it.
The template guides students to:
- Answer questions about the topic using an online informational text (website link provided) and graphic organizer
- Insert clip art
- Edit text boxes
- Change the design including theme, transitions, and animations
- Add bibliography text
The note taking graphic organizer and presentation template is editable if you need to change the requirements for your students.
The teacher guide file includes a rubric that you can use to grade their presentation for both the tech skills and the delivered presentation if you have them perform it for the class.
