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.
Eighth graders conduct research on various careers that are of interest to them. They conduct Internet research on a selected career choice, and create a nine card stack using HyperStudio to describe their career's salary, required skills, and general employment information.
This fabulous resource will help your class identify the parts of a story: subject, place, time, action, and moral. Class members will learn about storyboards and create their own about a Native American legend they researched online. This instructional activity uses a program called HyperStudio to create the final drafts of the storyboards; however, it could be easily adapted to be done without this program.
Fifth graders research topic of child labor by studying Industrial Revolution, read about child labor laws, and examine countries where child labor still exists today. They then choose single question to research from list, and create Hyperstudio presentation to be combined with those of classmates for one class presentation on child labor.
Students study tessellations and the work of M.C. Escher. They discuss the terminology of architecture, the historical significance of architecture in different parts of the world, and create their own piece of architecture out of cardboard boxes. Students use the video camera to save snapshots of local architecture and create a HyperStudio stack depicting images and text.
Students view a teacher created PowerPoint on the different types of volcanoes and complete a worksheet identifying the different types of volcanoes. They access the Internet to research a specific type of volcano. They create a storyboard presentation using Hyperstudio.
Students analyze animal characteristics by creating an interactive presentation. In this black bear instructional activity, students identify the geographic location, characteristics and history of the American black bear by researching the web. Students create a slide-show presentation using HyperStudio software based on the black bear.
Students complete a unit about career choices. They conduct research on a selected career that interests them, conduct an interview, explore various websites, create a five-page HyperStudio stack, and write ten checks that relate to their business and enter them into a Quicken register.
