Use Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2000 to animate elements in a chart. (tip taken from Microsoft.com)

How to Animate chart elements:

Create a spreadsheet and a chart to represent the data in the spreadsheet. For an example of how to create a pie chart using data gathered by students, see Favorite Authors.

1.

Select the chart, and then copy and paste it into a slide within a PowerPoint presentation.

2.

On the PowerPoint slide that contains the chart, do one of the following:
Click Animation Effects (star).

Click Toolbars, and then on the View menu, click Animation Effects.

3.

On the Animation Effects toolbar, click Custom Animation.

4.

Under Check to animate slide objects, select the elements of the chart you want to animate.

5.

In the Start animation area, choose whether you want the animation to start on mouse click or automatically.

Click the Chart Effects tab. Select how you want to introduce chart elements: by Series, by Category, and so on.
Note: If there is only one series of numbers, select by Category to make the bars or pie pieces appear one at a time.

Summary:

Students can make names, events, or dates crawl or scroll from the bottom of the screen off the top of the slide. This feature to create a scrolling time line. You might also use scrolling time lines for an author study, inventors and inventions, periods in history, etc.... (Tip courtesy of Peoria Unified School District, Glendale, Arizona)

How to Create movie-style crawling credits in PowerPoint presentations

1.

In a PowerPoint presentation, create a new slide for credits or any other list that you want to scroll from bottom to top.

2.

Type your credits or other text. Don't worry about text running off the bottom of the slide. In fact, it should run off the bottom if you are going to have enough text to make a crawl effect work well.

3.

Right-click the text, and on the shortcut menu, click Custom Animation.

4.

Select the text that you want to scroll. In the Custom Animation task pane, click Add Effect. Point to Entrance, and click Credits.

5.

Click Play to see how the effect will look on-screen

Content Area: All
Type of Application: Student
Time: An hour or so
 
Summary: Using PowerPoint to create a virtual tour about their lives would be something creative that the kids could do. They could either take pictures on a digital camera, or they could find pictures online that represent themselves and where they come from. I think this activity would be a great “Getting to Know You” project for the beginning of the year. It will also be good practice adding images onto presentations.

Type of Application: Both Teachers and Students
Time: Depends – not too long though!
 
Summary: I have just started adding sound in my PowerPoint presentations. Every time you transfer slides or show a bullet/picture, you can add a sound as well. For the presentations I have created, the kids have really responded to the sounds. Anything that holds their attention is a good thing!

MS Office Application: Power Point

Level: Primary, Elementary, Middle, and High School

Content Area: All

Type of Application: Both Teacher and Student

Time:Less than 2 Minutes

 

 

Summary:

 

One of my favorite new features to use while creating a power point presentation is the custom animation feature. When working on a power point presentation, right click on the object that you want to animate. Then left click on the custom animation tool. The custom animation window will appear to the right of your power point window. Go to the Add Effect button and click on the motion paths button and then on the draw custom path button. Draw any type of motion that you want for your presentation.

 

 


 

 

Susan's Class 6 Entry

Your Name: Susan

MS Office Application: Power Point

Level: High School

Content Area:  All

Type of Application: Teacher

Time: varies

Summary: Microsoft's Power Point has become the best tool I have for lecturing.  I try to find interesting design templates and to look for appropriate (and if possible - entertaining) pictures to help provide visuals for the information I am trying to convey.  Luckily, Power Point gives several options for page layouts, so I usually pick one that has text on one side and space for a visual on the other.  It makes it really easy to structure the lecture so that only the main points are emphasized without it getting to wordy.  I tend to underline the most important vocabulary words or concepts, so students can quickly see what needs to go in the notes.  I plan to start adding more hyperlinks and sounds to add more texture, but I can honestly say Power Point has changed the way I teach.

Lindsey's Class 5 Entry

I just read Susan's entry and I agree with what she said about PowerPoint.  I know it has been around for awhile, but it definitely has changed how I teach as well.  I even had my third-graders create a 5 slide ppt presentation on study habits as a fun way to get in the spirit of good test-taking strategies to slowly prepare for AIMS, which is coming up shortly.  They really enjoyed having the freedom to insert graphics and format the look and transition for their slideshow.  My next challenge is to try and incorporate spreadsheets into my teaching.  If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear.  Ofcourse third-grade appropriate.
