Here is a fun lesson to get your class started with a new creative writing project. Have them write stories about their summer vacation, using PowerPoint templates I have created for use in your classrooms. Use the sample template as an example for your class. Students who are new to PowerPoint can just add clip art and text to the blank template provided. If your class has used PowerPoint in the past, they can jazz up their stories by adding sound or music and animations to their story.
