Animal PowerPoint Blank Template (M.M.)
This is the template to use for your animal research PowerPoint. After you have worked on your PowerPoint you need to save it with your first and last name like this: JohnDoe.ppt and place it in the Massey folder on the T:drive. If you are saving it at home, you will need to bring it on your thumb drive/jump drive or email it to me. If you are doing this, do not wait to the last minute to do so. We will be working on these for only two days at school and they will be officially due by Friday November 20th.
A few helpful websites:
Pretend you are a lawyer, you need to give your opening statement (thesis) and present your case for your animal, then you need to help the jury (audience) get to know your animal and what makes them so special (background: its structures for survival, responses to external/internal stimuli) after they fall “in love” with your animal, then you need to pull on their heartstrings and let them know the animal rights issue that is causing it to become extinct. Then you will be able to conclude, much like a lawyer does in his final appeal to the jury to plead for his client. Your client is YOUR ANIMAL, so fight for him/her and don’t let them down!
