There are many ways you can show what you know about a place you are studying in school, whether it is a city, region, or country.

You might: give an oral report, write a research paper, make a poster or diorama, or take a test.

You can also create an interactive presentation.

In this lesson, you will choose a place you are studying in school or a place you would like to explore.

Then, you will create a slideshow presentation about that place.

Instead of just listing facts, you will make your presentation interactive with a clickable image.

A clickable image allows a user to choose a region and then go to another slide with more information.

A user chooses what they want to learn, which makes a presentation more engaging and fun.

To create your interactive image, you will: Create a new Slides presentation Choose an image that has multiple parts Draw invisible shapes over each section of the image And link each shape to a separate slide in your presentation.
