Holt Biology B Technology Pacing Guide Directions: For the technology portion of the class, you will be creating a power point presentation. Each week, you will send the current week’s slide(s) to your supervisory teacher. At the end of the class, you will present the entire project. After you read and follow the directions on each slide, delete the directions, so that your work can be easily viewed by the teacher. In addition, to the 6 slides described below, you will need to create a title and a work cited slide . *Feel free to add animations, change font, or other details to make you power point your very own. Be sure that your slides are easy to read and you are able to describe what you learned. Creative Title First Name Last Name Teacher Name Holt Biology B Assignment 1-Ecology • Go to http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/kiosk/mural.html and interact with the habitat by clicking on different “item of interest” • Right click and copy image on to slide.
