First Graders With MS Paint

With a new computer lab, no software except Windows and Office, we were challenged for activities for students. Mrs. P made some simple drawings, and showed the students how to pull them up in Paint, for students to complete by adding color.
Those beginning drawings were a truck, a house with tree, and a school.

... Truck ... house1 ... house2 ... house3 ... house4 ... school

Students could also choose to have a circle drawn on their screen, from which they built a pizza.

... ...

As students gained skills in Paint, they began to create their own artwork.
The following images are original art starting with a blank screen in MS Paint. Students used Menus to (file) and (new) as well as (save),(brush),(fill) and (colors)

Understanding 911 and World Peace

Mrs. Faulcon's class wrote to Zman, and he asked them to look at the pictures on Tribute to the Towers. The students discussed their pictures. Some students shared of family relationships with the events of September 11th. The students wrote to Zman explaining their pictures. They dictated their comments about their pictures and about New York City.

One student asked about the UN Building. Zman suggested they visit the United Nations Cyber School Bus Pictures of Peace. The students were delighted with the pictures. They were astonished to see pictures from children in so many places.

On their return to class from their special lab session, the Ms Falcon asked her students if they would like to draw Pictures of Peace. By the end of the day, all the students had drawn one or more pictures. Students chose the pictures they wanted sent to e-ZMan. Some students drew both Pictures for Peace and Pictures of Zman. The pictures were scanned and put on the web. Then the students sent their pictures and comments to ZMan.
