This ABC book was created by Mrs. Musselman’s 2004/2005 third grade class. The students observed the living organisms in the Rice School habitat. They picked a particular plant or animal to research. This information was used to create a paragraph and sentence for their letter of the alphabet. The students created this ABC book using Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Word Art. In creating the individual slides, the students used pictures from the HP digital camera and pictures from the internet. They also learned how to use text boxes, insert pictures from photos and internet sources, change the size of font and pictures, and use background colors and effects in Powerpoint to create this final product.
