Plant Tropism's .gif

Plant tropisms are a plant's response to stimuli. Familiar stimuli that influence plant growth are water, touch, gravity, and light. A plant's response can be positive (towards the stimulus) or negative (away from the stimulus). Select one of the following tropisms and create a .gif to illustrate the plant's response to a stimulus: Hydrotropism, Geotropism (Gravitropism), Phototropism, or Hydrotropism. 1. Decide on the tropism you will illustrate. 2. Open up a Google Slides document. 3. Create your .gif on no more than ten slides. 4. When completed, select "File" and then "Publish to Web." 5. Set timing to 1 second, and check both boxes: ✅Start slideshow as soon as the player loads ✅Restart the slideshow after the last slide 6. Copy the generated link and post it to Seesaw by:

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNrMQDNM59I to view a 5 min. video of how to make a .gif in Google Slides. *Please note if your students are protected in a Google Garden, depending on how student settings are set, their setting may not allow them to directly upload their gif to Seesaw. I got around this by making a copy of the student's Google slide document and uploading them to Seesaw through my account.
