Westfield Junior: Rocket launch - Year 3 working with graphics


Created: Oct 2006

Subjects: Information and Communication Technology ,

Year: 3 Level: 2

Teacher Comments:
As part of the Family Learning Project parent and child worked on using Paint to produce a picture. They learnt that ICT makes it easy to correct mistakes and explore alternatives: to select and use simple mark making tools: use the flood fill tool to create highlights of colour. They selected and used the straight line, geometric shapes and flood fill tools and to select and use the spray tool
They talked about the effect they wanted to create and learnt from each other as they tried out the different tools. For the parent it was useful to see what could easily be created using a computer. For the child it was fun helping mum. Together they explored creating a graphic and saving this for use in a word document later in the course.
