Directions: Create an original PowerPoint (PPT) presentation about children’s physical development. Cite and reference the literature. You must back up points, ideas, and examples with the course readings, lessons, and/or outside references. Make each slide interesting and engaging with visuals (e.g., a border, clip art/images, etc.). Include and address the following:
I. Title Slide – include an APA style title page/slide
II. Overview – introduce physical development…define it…
III. Basics – include more details about physical development such as fine and gross motor skills definitions and examples, important points, etc.
IV. Connections – discuss why it is important to observe and monitor children’s physical development. Analyze how physical development overlaps with cognitive and/or socio-emotional development. Explain how you could use your new knowledge about physical development factors and observations immediately or in the future either personally or professionally.
V. Reflection – be specific and explain and elaborate on 3-5 things you learned about children’s physical development and observing it. Reflect about what else you wonder about children’s physical development and observing it.
VI. Conclusion – in 4-5 sentences, summarize and conclude your presentation
VII. References – include complete references in current APA style. Make sure in-text citations align with references.
