My kids need Chromebooks to research Colonial America, using PowerPoint and Scratch, to create dynamic multimedia presentations. The students need to use a computer to research and share their work. Each student loves learning about Colonial America and convincing Europeans to come to their assigned regions. The computer will allow the kids to create interactive presentations to convince Europeans to migrate to their Colonial region. The computers will allow each and every kid to have the equipment they need to make a presentation that makes them feel good about themselves and helps them with their self esteem. We would really appreciate your help in this project.
