    You should use the information that you have learned about your element to present to the class. Choose the important and interesting information to share with the class and be sure to have at least one visual aide. Visual aides may include: posters, 3D models, websites, PowerPoint, and/or objects that use your element. Your visual aide will be worth up to 10 points (depending on quality, accuracy, and neatness) and your presentation will be worth another 10 points (depending on accuracy, voice, poise, and enthusiasm make it interesting).

    If you need help with visual aide materials, see Ms. Brown for assistance.

    Practice your presentation! Be aware of your voice volume and tone (no one wants to

    listen to a monotone voice). Watch yourself in a mirror so that you do not fidget or

    sway. Know your information so you are not looking at the visual aide the entire time.

    Give the audience eye contact and SMILE!!!

You may go beyond these requirements to earn EXTRA CREDIT. You may write an original

    song, story, cartoon, joke or poem about your element, create a game, and/or include research about the scientist who discovered your element in your presentation.
