Animated Step-by-Steps are animated PowerPoints designed to address literacy, language, AAC and a host of academic goals. Each page includes a series of animations. Read the text up to the star … click … and see an animation of what you just read.
There are three versions of this science resource. This is the Picture Communication Symbol (PCS) (Dynavox-Tobii) Version. Please note this resource is NOT compatible with Keynote.
This resource ‘walks’ students through the task of making a volcano using a baking soda-water & vinegar reaction. A squirt of dish soap has been added to yield a longer-lasting more impressive eruption.
This resource can be presented on the ‘large screen’ (interactive whiteboard, large screen TV using Apple TV) or the ‘small screen’ (computer monitor, iPad/Android tablet using the free Microsoft PowerPoint app). I have found the use of a remote switch to be an excellent way to engage students and allow them to share the magic of triggering the page animations using a switch. If you have an iPad in your classroom the Attainment Switch App can be used to remotely trigger the animations when displaying your ASbyS on the interactive whiteboard.
