I found another of my son’s old PowerPoint presentations while I was reorganizing our home computer. This one goes all the way back to when he was in 4th grade.
This assignment and presentation was supposed to be a biography of a famous person. They were supposed to find a biography in the school library. He chose “The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Salvador Dali” by Angela Wenzel. Although it was written for kids, I enjoyed reading it myself. I didn’t know a lot about Dali.The kids were assigned to take on the persona of the person, as they read their presentations. My wife used an eyeliner to “draw on” Dali’s famous mustache. Just click on an image to start the slideshow.
I received a lot of good comments from the teachers. The boy was really getting good at making PowerPoint presentations at this point. I think that his presentation holds up pretty well! The YouTube link to the Disney/Dali collaboration has been taken down. I was able to find another posting here:
If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the book, here is the link for Amazon.
