This PowerPoint presentation is a great way to introduce Golding’s Lord of the Flies.

This PowerPoint is devised to contextualize Golding’s novel in order to help students better understand and appreciate the novel.

There are 14 slides in total.

Included in this activity is:

– Introduction about the author
– A short film clip about the war and the fear it evoked
– Information about the story
– Information about Golding’s message
– Information about themes
– Information about the significance of the title
– Group discussion questions to serve as a pre reading guide
– Important elements in the novel

There are no spoilers for students in this presentation. The information prepares them for what they will read in order to better appreciate it and to develop themes later on.

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Microsoft Word Game”

by MrsTech

1st – 4th Grade



This is an activity that I used in my Elementary Tech classes to refresh what we learned last year about Microsoft Word basics.

Directions: Students will start with their name on their computer. They will then rotate every 30 seconds to answer one of the following questions that I call out. Think of this as a teacher directed game of SCOOT. If you have older students, you could also print these out as task cards. The students will have a good time laughing at their “Fake About Me” when they get back to their seat. After a quick refresher of where to locate the following items, I had the students change fonts, colors, and sizes of text as well as adding pictures of the items in their lists.
