Activity: This year, as a class, we have become very familiar with PowerPoint. We have worked in several
collaborative groups using PowerPoint presentations. Now is the time for your child to show off his/her skills!
This past month our class has explored how animals meet the basic needs of food and shelter in various habitats. We
have learned how to use a graphic organizer to organize our ideas. As a family, please make a PowerPoint
presentation featuring one animal from the arctic. Your child has already chosen and gathered information for
particular animal. Your child will present their PowerPoint to the classroom.
For an example of this project please visit my webpage: http://mrslabrucherie.weebly.com/habitat-familyproject-may.html
Objective: Students, along with their family members, will be using PowerPoint to create a presentation on
their favorite animal from the Arctic using research already gathered in the classroom.

Parents, have fun with this assignment! The idea for a family project is to work together. Let your child Shine
and show you what they have learned. Let them lead and guide them when they need guidance. I am very
excited to listen to these presentations!
Good Luck,
Mrs. LaBrucherie
