TechnoHero is awesome! As with all TechnoKids' projects it allows creativity, critical thinking, and is customizable. This PowerPoint project goes above the basics incorporating Internet research, making a comparison table, using SmartArt graphics to create a timeline and a cycle chart. The students love it as well!
