Each year at Saint Michael Lutheran School our students in grades 3-8 participate in a class trip. The fourth graders attend Sea Camp on Big Pine Key in the Florida Keys. There, they participate in many hands-on activities to help them learn about the sea life of Florida Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Before they go, students prepare for their trip through various classroom-based activities. When they return they complete a 5-photo story as part of their computer class. The following presentations were created using screencasting software, a Google Slides Presentation, and the free audio editor Audacity. Creating this presentation is a multi-step process that begins when students choose pictures, write a script, make a 5-slide presentation, give the presentation in front of their classmates, and record the audio/video presentation for publication on this website. The project is a multi-disciplinary part of our school curriculum requiring skill sets in language arts, computer technology, public speaking, and more.

We hope you enjoy the show! Please leave some comments here so our children know that someone besides their classmates and teacher are watching. We'd really appreciate it!

A NOTE ABOUT STUDENT PRIVACY: a few of the student links take you to a page requiring a password for privacy. The presenter inadvertently identified someone by face and name in the presentation, and my policy is to avoid doing that on the public web. These children can log in using their school login so that parents are able to view their presentations.
