Label the Skeleton Bones
Assignment: Students use clipart and text boxes to label the bones on a skeleton. Students insert a clipart image of a skeleton. Students learn to size and position the clipart on the page. Students insert, size and position text boxes in the appropriate places near the skeleton. Students add text inside the text boxes. Students change the font type, size and color to their preferences. Using text boxes for labeling is an essential skill that is useful for creating reports, title pages, brochures, presentations and posters.
