Stair Project: Earth's Position

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Ariel Myers (Student), Aug 20, 2012

This presentation would be a great tool to use not only in a 3rd grade classroom but for anyone interested in the basics of Earths importance. It is cute, engaging and definitely informative. The videos were very helpful, especially with the different videos presented by Brain Pop Jr. Brain Pop Jr. is a great resource to use for students at that age. The design of this presentation was also created perfectly with the content it was emphasizing. I enjoyed the slides with difference planets on them that also included their colors. The audio used within this presentation is an excellent way to aid diverse learners. Students have a visual infront of them while also listening to it being said. This presentation gives multiple resources for students to use in order demonstrate their knowledge after they complete the interactive power point. This wwas also a great way to give students a choice and have them apply their learning in different ways.

Technical Remarks:

I felt that this presentation was very easy to move through. It is definitely user friendly and its design makes students excited about learning. One thing I would reconsider is putting in a "review information," option somewhere while answering the questions. Instead of students 'guessing' the answer, they have an option to re-read what they learned. I also think it would be helpful to those students who may need a guide while answering questions. Overall, I think this will be a great resource to any classroom!
