Students create a Christmas or holiday themed picture using shapes and drawing tools in Microsoft Word. The final drawings can be printed as Christmas cards, or used as art for additional activities. This packet contains directions for the assignment, a handout for students, two grading rubrics, and examples of drawings that students have completed in my class. The rubrics are identical except one requires students to email their work to their instructor.
My students love working on this assignment! I play Christmas music during class while students work on their drawings. This year we are going to have a party to celebrate and share our drawings with each other. We have invited our administrators to attend. I’m looking forward to listening to students explain their drawings and the computer skills they used to create them!
Student drawings will be posted on our school website after Christmas break! This is an awesome way to show off student work and explain the variety of computer skills being taught at our school!
