  • I had never made a PowerPoint presentation before, so I have had many “a-ha” moments making this. I can see where this would be a huge asset in the classroom. This will hold a child’s attention for a while and hopefully get them to learn something new. I can see why PowerPoint is used for presentations, it was fairly easy to put together for me, which isn’t always the case when dealing with learning new software. The information I provided is common knowledge and difficult to attribute to one source. Any of the websites listed in the presentation will have this information on them.
