Step #2 describes a web site that allows you to download your favorite TV theme songs. Step #3 gives you step by step instructions with diagrams detailing how to create music clips. Step #4 shows you how to insert music clips into PowerPoint slides. Step #5 details the “Name That Tune” PowerPoint project where students combine TV show artwork with theme song clips.
