This ‘sand timer’ will start on a mouse click anywhere on the slide. The ‘sand’ will drain from the top section to the lower section and when completed will show the word ‘End’.To change the timings of this timer, you need to enter the animation settings, and change the timings for the Isosceles Triangles. There will be 2 that need changing (to the same amount) – one animates the top triangle emptying, whilst the other animates the bottom triangle filling.When you change the timings these have to entered as a number of seconds.
Students will all 4 collaborate with their findings. Students will compare and contrast specifics (I will type directions) I will ask questions pertaining to the learning target
