“Fact-Filled Bingo” is a computer program sure to bring excitement to your Westward Expansion unit. Instead of numbers, the talking robot calls out random persons, events and documents complete with pictures and interesting facts. Forty bingo cards suitable for laminating are provided.
Also included is the computer program “Fact-Filled Slideshow”. Hook up your classroom PC/Mac to a SmartBoard or projector to highlight 48 different persons, events and documents. Again the talking robot does the narrating. Ideal for projects where students select an Old West topic to research.
Both programs use text-to-speech technology to make the robot speak. As a bonus I’ve included the manual “Text-to-Speech” which teaches you how to make your PowerPoint presentations talk. A free online utility accepts your text and coverts it to a sound file, which in turn can be imported into slides. Ideal for the computer lab!
