This PowerPoint assignment was created for my 6th grade Computers class. This assignment has students work either in pairs or by themselves to create a children's story aimed for Kindergarten age on PowerPoint. Students either wrote their own story or used an already published story, and added background music,animations and narrations. At the culmination of this assignment, students voted on the top 3 to be shown to my school's Kindergarten class. This assignment builds on Computers skills, while enabling students to use their creativity. My students did a fantastic job using animations such as motion paths to reflect the story line.
This assignment includes 5 installments. Each installment includes step-by-step directions as well as a rubric. I found that this assignment also helped my students to learn to follow directions as part of the grade was using the rubric as a checklist to make sure they included all the necessary components.
