Solar System Presentation – Homework


You have your planet (if not then come and see me asap)

You have your computer.

Now all you have to do is create the presentation.

Your homework for the next two weeks will be to create and prepare for your presentation on your assigned planet / celestial body.

Your presentation should be about 5 minutes long. It should be presented properly and interestingly and not just read word-for-word.

You will be graded on content, presentation delivery style, and effort in preparation.

The presentations will begin in class starting from Friday 7th December. Students will be picked randomly for presenting. So be prepared!
