Ever year, we do some kind of English speech presentation. It’s bland stuff. We usually just look at 5 -6 flat lifeless pictures of a famous dead person while the students read from hopefully memorized scripts. The power points are usually littered with words, sometimes hanging off the edge of the slide. This year I hope to do things a little differently as we are changing the topic to animals. I hope to remove almost all words and to help them make their visual aids a little more interesting to the 3rd-grade crowd (without going overboard on the special effects budget).
