    Students enjoy creating their own unique presentations and it allows the teacher an opportunity to customize projects and build in “choice.”
  • 7. Photo Story
    Students take a series of digital pictures and insert them into the free program, along with narration and/or music. For students who aren’t good with keyboarding or who are tired of Powerpoint – this is a great option!

    Highlights has a great interactive website for the rebus story!
