Posted by Amber Gonzalez on January 18, 2019 at 9:14pm

LT: I can use Microsoft PowerPoint to work through the design process.
SC: Save a stop motion animation to the S: Drive.

Today we are using what we learned about stop motion movies to create a stop motion movie in PowerPoint, Microsoft Office's presentation program.  We will use the following commands to create our animation: 

 

1. Add Background (nature, ocean, or space)
2. insert Shape
3. Duplicate Slide
4. Transition: Advance Slide

 

When you are done, please save your work to the file in my workspace on the S: Drive called "Powerpoint Slide Show".

Next week, we will explore another Microsoft Presentation tool called "Sway".
