has asked the Master Technology Teacher for assistance in creating the presentation.
Using your knowledge of presentation software, create a model slide show presentation to Mr.
specifications. In creating this presentation, you should
create four slides using the five files provided by Mr.
, with each slide containing a title and the appropriate graphic and the provided text displayed as a bulleted list;
format the slides appropriately to communicate to the intended audience (you may resize and manipulate text and graphics as necessary); and
animate the entry of the text into slides 1 and 3, and animate the entry of the graphics into slides 2 and 4 (the animations should occur automatically and not require a mouse or keyboard click).
Please complete the task on slides 4-7; save the file and upload it into the wiki on the appropriate page.Slide8
This performance assessment focuses on a high school biology teacher, Mr. Hguyen, who is preparing a unit on the life cycle of a butterfly - metamorphosis.
As part of the study on metamorphosis, Mr.. Hguyen would like to present to his students a brief slide show presentation outlining the four stages of butterfly life. He would like the presentation to consist of one introductory slide that contains the egg stage and one slide on each of the other three stages, and he would like to have each slide in the presentation advance manually.
Mr. Hguyen has provided a link to the graphics for the four slides that can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
