I would show the how-to-video on slide #2 so they understood how to complete this unit. They can always watch it again for clarity. After showing the video, you could show one of the videos and pause occasionally to brainstorm what facts they could write in the facts section of the slide. Once you complete the facts on the slide as an example, students can brainstorm questions that you can add in the question section of the slide. Students can then share what kind of keyword search they would do to find solutions to the problems they are concerned about. Those solutions can then be added to the slide. As a class, you can brainstorm what images to add to the gallery that would complement the story of the slide you are working on.
If you don’t want to do an example in front of the class, you can show the video of the first example on slide #4. Read what I wrote for facts, then share the questions and possible solutions. Students can add what they would have written instead and a wonderful conversation can take place.
As a former design teacher, I encourage consistency in design. Each slide was laid out to be visually appealing. If students write too much, they will need to change the font size to make it fit in the text box, which will impact the design. With that said, they might need to write more succinctly, or delete some information that isn’t as important. Having them write limited characters will help them with writing and memory. According to Eric Curts, a technology integration specialist, putting limits on the number of words or characters our students can use forces them to summarize key points, select what is most important, choose words that best convey meaning, restate concepts and avoid unnecessary filler and fluff.

If you have any problems or have any questions about this unit, please send me an email and put TpT in the subject line. I will be happy to get back with you.
