Second through eighth graders use the software "HyperStudio" to create a presentation of their choice on Native American lifestyles. One thing I like a lot about this lesson, is that the students are the ones who get to choose and produce their presentation. They aren't "told" what to do it on. Terrific instructions, links to Native American websites, and good ideas for how to extend the lesson are all present.
The many activities in this resource serve to introduce second graders to the Macintosh computer and to various programs and their creative product options. They make sideshows using KidPix, practice using email with the Journey South program, complete a Mystery President email activity, a Hyperstudio activity, and make a timeline for President Truman.
Sixth grade young scholars mentor third graders to create an "All About Me" presentation in Spanish. They design three slides in PowerPoint and compare their information to their classmates. At the end of the project, each pair presents their presentation to the entire class.
