Product Description
This end of the year activity will provide a high-interest, engaging mini-project for your students! Students will reflect on this past school year, learn to live in the moment, and to ultimately recognize that their past mistakes and any perceived failures are temporary life experiences - experiences that can help you evaluate, reflect, and to grow! This is designed to promote a positive growth mindset and to keep your students motivated until the very end!

This teaching resource includes an editable modern Google Slides project presentation that outlines all requirements and concludes with a project checklist.

All of the work has been done for you! Self-directed learning will be fostered with your students through the specific directions and project examples!

This resource provides differentiation with alternative project options and through student choice in selecting their topics. Your students will assume more ownership when they choose topics that interest them the most. Twenty-one modern, relevant topics are featured in the project slides presentation. Some of the sample topics include -

Write About a Time When You Misjudged Someone
My Game Plan (Future Goals)
The Struggle Is Real! (Overcoming Obstacles and Set Backs)
I Couldn’t Stop Laughing…

Students will create a presentation using Google Slides/Power Point or create an Adobe Spark Page using their free website. Their digital storytelling includes selecting 8 of the 21 topics, using real-life photos to tell their stories, audio, and representative images.

The free Adobe Spark website is user-friendly and fun! A screenshot tutorial handout and a how-to video link will show your students how to easily create an Adobe Spark page.

Students will also be more motivated after viewing two sample projects featuring high school students! A sample My Year in Review presentation using Google Slides features a high school male. Students can also view a sample Adobe Spark Page created by a high school female.

Along with being provided with 21 writing topics and the ability to view two project examples to serve as a model, students will also learn how to use the Explore tool to customize slide layouts in Google Slides.

Students who choose to create an Adobe Spark page will be provided with a how-to on creating a panoramic scrolling glide-show of photos and images.
Grading rubrics are included for both the Google Slides presentation option and the Adobe Spark Page!

This project is compatible with any device using Google Chrome. Materials are designed to be used with Google Drive. Instructions for downloading and printing are included for Microsoft Office or OneDrive. Please note that the option to use the Explore tool is not available unless the student uses Google Slides. This is only one of many project options, however!

This purchase includes

★ A downloadable pdf teacher’s guide;
★ Google Drive share links that will prompt you to make a copy of all materials into your own Google Drive;
★ Instructions on how to access and share resources;
★ Teacher’s notes on how to implement.

Keep your students engaged and motivated until their last day with this fun, reflective project!
