This is the template for a Today In Science PowerPoint. Use this copy as a guide for students and parents.
In my classroom, I use this sample template to introduce the idea of the weekly science report to my students. In turn, I send this PowerPoint to the parents of one student a week and then have that student share their report with the class. Students are eager to be the next presenter and really enjoy sharing their report with the class.
This project hits so many key subject areas and standards, including: speaking & listening skills, informational reading, summarizing a text, student technology use, current events, etc.
