She did tons of research and even became an avid google searcher (with supervision). She did most of her research with library books. She decided a powerpoint presentation was the best format for her project. It was not my first choice, but someone told me about prezi.com. Its format is a little more kid friendly and Scarlet caught on quickly. She placed all of the images and typed in all of the text.
The directions also requested the student dress as their animal... which proved problematic. We tried to go the wet suit route but were not able to find one of the right size. So, we just went with grey and sparkly. Close enough.
We practiced for about a week and then it was time to go. She was the last presentation of the day, but before she started, her teacher ran out quickly in the hallway saying, "Hold on, the principal wanted to see this one." Talk about pressure.
Here is her presentation.
She did a really great job. The presentation was projected on the school wall and it was really hard to see the bottom of the slide so she missed a few of her point. But her true shining moment is when she describes echolocation, which she thinks is the coolest thing ever. I am devastated that the video we tried to take didn't work. She got 100% on her project and loved every minute of it.
