inside back cover of this topic for instructions on downloading the Data Files for Students, or contact
your instructor for information about accessing the required i les.
As you design the presentations, remember to use the 7 3 7 rule: a maximum of seven words on a
line and a maximum of seven lines on one slide.
1: Design and Create a Presentation about Kilauea Volcano
Most of the volcanic eruptions in Hawaii have occurred within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. One
of these volcanoes, Kilauea, has been erupting since 1983, and visitors to the National Park can drive
on two roads to see lava tubes, steam vents, and plants returning to the barren landscape. Rainwater
drains through cracks in the ground, is heated, and then is released through i ssures and condenses in
the cool air. Lava l ows in underground tubes, and vents release volcanic gases that consist mainly of
carbon dioxide, steam, and sulfur dioxide. During your recent trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park,
you drove on these roads and captured these geological wonders with your video and digital cameras.
You want to share your experience with your Geology 101 classmates. Create a presentation to show
the pictures and video clips, which are located in the Data Files for Students and begin with the i le
name, Case 1. You also can use pictures from Ofi ce.com if they are appropriate for this topic. Apply
appropriate styles and effects, and use at least three objectives found at the beginning of this chapter to
develop the presentation. Be sure to check spelling.
2: Design and Create a Presentation about Suri ng
During your summer vacation, you took suri ng lessons and enjoyed the experience immensely. You
now want to share your adventure with friends, so you decide to create a short PowerPoint presentation
with video clips of the surf and of your paddling on your surfboard to the instruction area in the ocean.
You also have pictures of your introductory lesson on shore and of your i rst successful run catching a
wave. The Data Files for Students contains these media i les that begin with the i le name, Case 2. You
also can use your own digital pictures or pictures from Ofi ce.com if they are appropriate for this topic.
Use the clip, Case 2 - Yellow and Green Surfboard, on one slide, but ungroup this clip and then change
the surfboard’s colors to your school’s team colors. Trim the video clips and apply appropriate styles and
effects. Use at least three objectives found at the beginning of this chapter to develop the presentation.
Be sure to check spelling.
3: Design and Create a Presentation to Promote Your Snow Removal Business
Record snowfalls have wreaked havoc in your neighborhood, so you have decided to earn tuition money
by starting a snow removal business. You are willing to clear sidewalks and driveways when snowfall
exceeds three inches. To promote your business, you desire to create a PowerPoint presentation to run
behind the counter at the local hardware store. The Data Files for Students contains pictures and a video
clip that begin with the i le name, Case 3. You also can use your own digital pictures or pictures from
Ofi ce.com if they are appropriate for this topic. Use the clip, Case 3 - Man Shoveling, on one slide, but
ungroup this clip and then zoom in and delete the white area of the clip depicting the man’s breath. Also,
recolor at least one picture and apply an artistic effect. Be sure to check spelling.
