In this lesson, students students created a presentation on the three basic types of clouds.  To keep things simple, we started off with a 3 page Keynote template and provided a folder of images for them to use.


  1. Double click the keynote file to open
  2. On each slide, double click to edit text
    1. Enter the title, which is the name of the cloud types: Cirrus, Stratus, or Cumulus.
    2. Describe the cloud type. From the students, get answers and write them up as examples.
  3. On each page, drop a cloud picture in, making sure to replace the existing picture.
  4. Students add additional slides. They can add...
    1. A slide with a few pictures
    2. A "Cloud Facts" slide with anything else they know about clouds
    3. An "About the Author" slide
