I have a dream...
Ask students to reflect on the ways that they dream the world could be a better place. Students type inside the speech bubble on the template describing one or more dreams they have to make the world a better place. Students increase the font size to make their sentences easier to read. Students can change the font style to personalize their work. Students add their name. Students save and or print their finished "I Have a Dream" sheet.
Spelling and formatting practice in Word
- Change the color of the letters
- Change the text highlight color
- Change the font size
- Change the font style
This is also a good opportunity to teach students about saving their work.
