					                            PowerPoint Presentation for Biology 1

Each student will need to design a PowerPoint presentation over one of the ten body systems we are
learning about in class. Students will need to meet all requirements for each slide. I have provided
complete instructions and expectations in the form of a checklist. Please check off each
requirement as you complete the task to ensure that you have met all criteria. This needs to be
saved to your student folder and will weigh as a test grade for this six weeks.
