Overview of Digital Art Projects in this Bundle
Each project is designed to practice basic computer skills. They require students to copy and paste graphics from one slide to another to create a digital craft.
Every project includes student direction slides to walk them through the steps of making their virtual craftivity. Feel free to break up the slide deck into two documents: one for the directions and the other for the moveable pieces they’ll use to design their craft. This might be most advantageous for your special education students.
Lastly, each child will respond to a writing prompt. There are two prompts to choose from. You may decide to assign a specific one to your class that’s most appropriate for them.
Each download contains a two-page PDF with directions on how to access the templates. And these documents comes ready to go in Google Drive, so don’t worry about trying to figure out how to import them into your Drive!
Each digital art project includes directions for some basics like copy/pasting, rotating, ordering, and adjusting the size of images. Some include slides showing how to add a text box so kids can type word or directions on grouping objects.
