Video #6: Make A Christmas Stocking With Microsoft Powerpoint's Basic Shapes

Loading...
Do you want your kids to be more computer savvy? Here'a a narrated tutorial that shows how to make some stylized Christmas stockings with the powerpoint program. As the students learn how to use powerpoint to make holiday graphics, they will become more proficient with using the program to create other things. Students will create coloring pages to color in (with crayons, colored pencils, etc.) and beautifully colored graphics to hang as decorations or use as clip art.

Not only will students blend technology with creativity, but they will be doing a little math too! As they use the basic shapes to make their stocking, they will become more familiar with geometric figures and their names/spellings.

This tutorial is comprehensive yet very simplistic. Combining that information with its fun content of Christmas stocking making, students will certainly enjoy this!

Adults who aren't very familiar with powerpoint may find this tutorial to be very beneficial as well.

What is covered in this tutorial:

*how to retrieve objects from the shapes menu
*drag and drop
* sizing and moving with object knobs
* highlighting and formatting many objects into a single image
* fill coloring
* changing outline colors and thickness
* exposure to the geometric shapes menu and its pic art such as sun, moon, heart, etc.
*copy/paste

*how to "cut"
*rotate with object "knob" or with format/rotate function
