Text Formatting Activities
type the text, it should all be in lowercase to match the finished examples provided.
Ways to add challenge:
- Have students Highlight the text with the color instead of changing the font color.
- Have students add a line at the end that says what the shape is.
- Have students add a clip art image that represents the design.
- Have students type a reflection about how the activity went and what they might do
differently next time.
Ways to provide supports (make it easier):
- Provide students with a second sheet of paper or a flat edge like a ruler so that they
can be looking at one line at a time.
- Dictate the directions one line at a time to students.
- Demonstrate each line as you go using a projector or screensharing software.
