Each page must have at least 4 sentences. All text must be in Spanish. You may not use a translator. Using a translator will be considered cheating and may result in a failure for part or the entire project. Each page shall contain a personal photograph of you as a child. For a PowerPoint transitions, animations and clip art or for Scrapbooks drawings and stickers and professional binding should be used to enhance the presentation.
