****Updated 9/7/16 with a new set of instructions showing CC screen shots and the toolbox labeling sheet is also updated with a CC version.This lesson works with any version of Photoshop from CS3-CC!****
This is the very first assignment I give to my Photoshop students. I teach them how to use the move tool, magic eraser, and Ctrl+T to transform the images being copied from the Internet. I also teach them how to zoom in and out with the keyboard.
Objective 1: the student will use the move tool, magic eraser tool, eraser tool, and the transform function in Adobe Photoshop.
Objective 2: The student will copy and paste images from the Internet with one color backgrounds.
Objective 3: The student will use Ctrl-+ and Ctrl - to zoom in and out of the image being created.
This lesson contains:
1. A 10 page step-by-step handout on how to create a simple collage with samples and a rubric.
2. A video outlining the steps from the handout.
3. A handout on labeling the Photoshop tools.
4. A 4 page handout to read called "What is Photoshop?" with 11 review questions and the answer key
This lesson takes me between 3-4 hours to complete with my students.

Why buy these lessons when there is free stuff like this on the Internet?
These lessons are all high-school/adult learner tested. I have used these lessons with over 100 students, some with thousands of students. Many of the online tutorials are meant for intermediate or more advanced users and will skip steps. I have added steps and images to make the lesson easier to follow, these are not 1 page lessons. They are between 6 (for the simple ones) and 17 pages each! If you let me know of a step you would like added I will add it in and send you the updated file. I try to create these so my students have the least amount of questions possible.
