Presentation Exercises

by Greg Bowden



Presentation Exercises provides teachers with a series of graduated presentation activities. These can be given to students directly or used by teachers in the development of their own course materials.

Individual exercises in Microsoft Word format are provided so that the exercises can be easily modified when necessary.

The purpose of the exercises is to give teachers ideas of the types of presentation activities that can be given students. Teachers can then teach Presentation software in their preferred way.

The exercises do not provide detailed instructions on how to create the presentations, but they do provide brief instructions on the Presentation features that could be used. If more detailed instructions are required, then the Learning Microsoft PowerPoint Modules would be a better product to use.


A presentation for the mythical Wattle Valley Animal Park is progressively built throughout the Exercises.


Support files are provided in the PRESENTATIONS SUPPORT FILES when exercises need images, videos, sound files or prepared presentations.


A sample file with the first few exercises can be downloaded from the following zip file:
