Denise Cruz's curator insight, March 18, 1:45 PM

Ms. Cruz's students: Locating information on websites is a valuable skill which you need to develop to be a successful student. Use one PowerPoint design themed slide to complete the assignment then upload it to Edmodo. Play one of the games for 10 turns and take a screenshot of your completed game including the score. Answer the following questions on the slide using Smart Art. What is the name of the project, who can fund the project, how is the project able to increase its visual content, when was the project established, where was the project started? 
Remember your audience, your slide should be visually appealing and clutter free. Earn 50 XP. Close date 3/19/14.
