Treasure Island PowerPoint Presentations

As part of our Treasure Island Reading/Study Unit, I have asked the kids to create PowerPoint presentations about different pirates or topics about pirates. Jake has even asked to research several that's cool! As a homeschool mom, that's the stuff I like to hear! lol!

If you have never used PowerPoint in your studies, you are really missing out! It is easy to use and allows the child to be creative. I think it's a great alternative to the written report. Now, don't get me wrong, the written report is still very important...I'm just saying this is a nice change. After we finish reading Treasure Island, we'll present our PowerPoints and share with others what we've learned about pirates.

Here's the pirates that have been chosen:

Jake: Edward Teach, Thomas Tew
Nik: Weapons that Pirates Used
Pete and Belle: Food that Pirates Ate
Me: Grace O'Malley, Ann Bonney

So far Jake is the only one that has started!

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several
weeks of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
