In the lesson plan "Turn an Earth Landscape into an Alien Landscape," students create and draw their own landscape using MS Paint on the computer, operate printer to print picture, and had them critique their work. MS Paint is a great and easy application for elementary students to learn. It also helps students become familiar with tools and palettes on the computer. When preparing the lesson, I familiarized myself with MS Paint and created an example for the students. It is also very important to start up the computers so that there would be no "technical difficulties." Showing the students how to save their work in their own designated folders allows me to check on each student's progress on the art lesson.
