I’m doing a PowerPoint presentation on silk, which is something I’ve never done before – I usually just talk loud and wave my hands and pass around live insects. The live insects are demo rock-stars – everybody loves them. They rock the house.
I have some experience with PowerPoint, but not much. I have a lot of experience giving presentations, just not with the projector part.
This presentation is for a group of about 125 kids; they range in age from first grade to seventh grade.
I’m mostly looking for input on things like type size, does it look too dark, should I use a different transition, that kind of thing.
I haven’t yet talked my way through this completely, to see if it will really take up 30 minutes (I think they really want more like 25 minutes – they have to move the kids in and out).
I will get to spend 20 minutes with each class separately later in the day, and show them things that they can touch and feel, and they get to take home cocoons and silk.
The file is HERE. I know that it’s huge – don’t know if there’s an easy way to scrunch it down, without sacrificing image quality.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
