This assignment is intended for Google Slides, but it could also be completed with PowerPoint. If using PowerPoint, the students will need to submit their slides to the teacher and the teacher will need to put each created slide onto one PowerPoint. This assignment can be adapted for any area of the world.
As a class students will be creating one slide show that we will be able to reference throughout the unit. Everyone in the class will work in groups of two. Each group will work in class to create at least one slide that shows the rest of the class one unique physical feature in the continent of Africa. If this is not completed in class, it will be the students' responsibility to finish it at home.
-Students will conduct research related to Africa’s physical features through collaboration and use of Google Slides/PowerPoint. -Students will create one or more slides that they will then share with the class. (Slide expectations are available on the third slide.) In the end, each student will have a copy that they can refer to throughout the lesson or for studying purposes. You may also choose to refer back to it when touching on different parts of Africa.
When used on Google Slides the students can work on the same slide at the same time on different devices. A benefit to Google Apps is that it allows students to “take the assignment home” with them if needed.
