Don’t worry about compatibility! A common problem with editable resources is wonky text. This is a result of the original creator using fonts that you do not have on your computer. To avoid this problem, this resource is created using the common fonts of Arial and Georgia. Additionally, the PowerPoint version is saved as a 97-2003 Presentation, which is compatible with versions 1997 and up.
