The Greatest Historical Mystery of ALL TIMES
If you ask a historian what is the greatest historical mystery of all times, chances are that they may mention the Lost Colonists of Roanoke. This week’s task was to create a historical slide show presentation limited to 3 slides. The difficulty here is trying to limit incredible amounts of information to 3 slides. I felt that the lost colonists would be the best way to make an impact, because it is a moment in history that gets people excited. What happened to them? They vanished without a trace.
I used Microsoft Power Point to create my slide show presentation. After an interesting discussion in class on Tuesday, I tried to ensure that my slides were interesting and informative while not overdone. In order to embed the slides to my site, I had to first upload the presentation to my Google Drive, and then ‘share’ it, thus creating a link where everyone could see. Here is the strange thing (a mystery perhaps, much like those lost settlers)-when I created the slide, and when I look at them on my Google Drive, they are all grey. But when I click the link below, the second and third slides are green. ooooOOOOOOooooo, strange. I have no idea why it happened. I hope you like the presentation.
