Unsolved Mysteries Presentation (Partners)

Create a 2-slide PowerPoint presentation using the “Basis” design.
Slide 1: Title slide containing the "unsolved mystery", and student names
Slide 2: 3-6 pictures that pertain to your unsolved mystery
Each person must present. You may use one index card to write down the information you will share. DO NOT read your index card. It is simply a “help” to remind you what to say. The information you present must include the following:

What is your mystery?

Why is it a mystery?

What is the important “must know” information about your mystery?

What are the theories? (what do people think may have happened? Why?)

What evidence is there to prove or disprove your mystery?

What do you and your partner believe? (You do not have to agree)
You will have 3 minutes to present your mystery.
