Your investigation begins by first printing out the PowerPoint below, as a handout. Then, you want to continue your investigation by accessing each of the websites listed below. Be sure to have the PowerPoint handout nearby as you investigate, so that you can write down the important information that each PowerPoint slide asks you to complete. You will write down the information that you found about each slide on seperate peices of notebook paper. Be sure to be descriptive when writing out the topic/subject for each slide.

When you are done investigating each website and you have found all the information needed to successfully complete the PowerPoint, you will then type the information on the PowerPoint provided below. When you are finished typing up the PowerPoint, you will print out the handouts and cut each of them out. When you are done cutting, you will staple the handout PowerPoint squares together to create an informative flip book. So, put your thinking caps on and get your pencils ready because it is time to investigate!
