But I got around it and still managed to make it look amazing and clear to see! Every, image, video, sound, animation that I used with in my PowerPoint presentation I referenced. This was done by putting the name of the elements. Some of the pictures I used were of students and staff, but I had permission to use these.

Also I should come back to do my work after school to make sure I complete it or re do it. I could plan my PowerPoint before doing it to make it a lot more successful.
