Once you have decided on the information you want to include in your presentation it is time to put together your presentation. Your team's presentation should include between a minimum of 8 slides (a title slide, 6 content slides, and a credits slide) and a maximum of 17 slides (a title slide, 15 content slides and a credits slide).

Before going to work on the computer, it is a good idea to lay out a storyboard for your presentation with a rough draft of the information you plan to present on each slide. Make sure that you answer the essential or big question for this WebQuest -- Why should this biome be saved? -- in your presentation.

You may want to review the sample presentation on the chaparral biome as you work on your own presentation.
If you wish, you may utilize this PowerPoint template to help you create your presentation. However you decide to create your presentation (from scratch or using the template), remember, you do not want to put everything you are going to say on a slide. The slides should include the main points, essential information and graphic aids, but not the entire text of your presentation. Use the note section of PowerPoint for helpful reminders of your presentation content, but you should not simply read your slides.

PowerPoint is a fun program, but don't get carried away with all the bells and whistles. Choose one slide scheme and stick with it. The content should be the main focus of your presentation. Consult the presentation evaluation rubric for additional information on how your presentation will be evaluated.

Each member of the team must speak during your presentation. Practice your presentation together and encourage each other.
