Unformatted text preview: Activity: Flash Cards using Microsoft PowerPoint In addition to presentations, Power Point can be used to create a sequence of hyperlinked slides to use as electronic flash cards. When used, the questions will be displayed for students to consider and answers can be accessed by clicking on an appropriate navigation button. In this Skills Builder, you will build a flash card set you can adapt to any drill and practice activity. Power Point is a powerful presentation package that can be adapted to many teaching and learning tasks. This example creates basic flash cards using Power Point’s navigation tools. However, Power Point flash cards can also include sound, animation, and even video. You can record a verbal explanation for each slide or show illustrative video clips. This activity will provide with you the basic skills you need to set up a flash card presentation. From there, you can add as many enhancements as your creativity allows. Using the skills you gained in the All About You PowerPoint Assignment create 10 different flash cards in Microsoft PowerPoint (21 slides total), which includes an opening slide with your name and the topic. Make up your own Flash Cards from any topic you want. Sample ideas include vocabulary words or state facts. Use creative clip art in this project along the way. Make sure to include action buttons with links and to hide the answer slides. See attached instructions for creating action buttons and hiding slides.
