Computer Graphics Pizza Unit is a fun and engaging way to learn the graphics portion of MS Word. This lessons is actually a unit to introduce computer graphics in not only the art class, but is adaptable to most subject areas. The 3 complete lessons include drawing a pizza, writing an article and creating a menu. The first two lessons are for grades 3 to 8 grade learners, while the menu lesson is designed for 6th through 8th grade. The pizza lesson uses MS Word’s drawing capabilities. This seldom used area of MS Word is quite powerful and valuable. The students will learn several beginning aspects of drawing on a computer. The areas learned are shape, shape format, shape fill, copy and paste. While writing the article, the students will create a header, and use word art, review graphics, and write multiple paragraphs from the viewpoint of a food critic. The menu has the students using columns, inserting graphics and formatting text. This unit will get the students a working understanding of word processing and graphics.
