This assignment is great for introducing or reviewing a very important fundamental in Photoshop - using the selection tools. Students will create a Spot the Differences type graphic that you might see in a magazine. This is a classroom tested assignment that students really enjoy. I often get my students to replicate the image that I have done to introduce how to select pixels with various tools, and then I get students to come up with their own unique Spot the Differences graphic using the internet to find images they like. You can then display the students work via projector and have classmates try to find the differences. They really enjoy this!

Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments regarding this assignment! I hope that you find it useful and I look forward to hearing from you.
Included in this package:
- a .pdf instruction file
- a student answer Photoshop file that contains the background image.
- A completed answer file.
- A balloon .jpg image.
- A van .jpg image.
- Take the time to do one yourself prior to presenting to the students so you are familiar with the steps.
- I recommend you demo copying the cloud, placing the balloon image in Photoshop and removing it from its background, and copying a mountain peak (10-15 minutes teaching time). After that, students can be given the instructions and off they go!
- If you have time, show off students work when they are done, this is motivating for them.
