PowerPoint Presentation: “’Know thyself,’ a wise old Greek once said. ‘Know thyself .’ Now what does this mean, boys and girls? It means to be who you are. Don’t try to be Sally or Johnny or Fred next door. Just be yourself. God gives to each of us a special talent. God want some of us to be scientists, some of us doctors, and firemen, and even trapeze artists. And he gives the special talent to become these things, provided we work to develop them. And we must work, boys and girls. So know thyself. Learn to understand your talents and then work to develop them. That is the only way to be truly happy.” These are the famous words from Jimmy Dodd.

PowerPoint Presentation: Let’s look back on what we’ve learned today about our beloved rodent friend. We’ve learned that Mickey was invented by one of the most creative and imaginative people of our time, Mr. Walt Disney. His film debut in Steamboat Willie was the beginning of a very prosperous career and has made him the king of animated short film. He’s gone from a steamboat captain to a sorcerer’s apprentice, and along the way has made us laugh and earned a place in the hearts of millions of Americans. He’s evolved physically each year resembling more of the times, and emotionally with his admiration for Minnie and his concern for his gang. Today the legend lives on in his films, theme parks, toys, and most of all, he is the universal object of innocence. So never forget this famous song: M-I-C – see you real soon, K-E-Y – Why? Because we like you. M-O-U-S-E. Write it out WORD-FOR-WORD! Include all FOUR parts! Underline the review.
