Clip Art

Instructions for Downloading Clip Art: for most sites you can simply find the graphic you like. Click the right mouse button on the selected image/graphic. A little menu will pop up - from that menu select "Save image as.." or "Save picture as.." (wording depends on the browser you are using). Now you decide where to save it on your computer. Remember the location because you will need to know where to find it when you use it. It is a good idea to use the same location, for example My Pictures.

The bottom layer, called the C level, has a variety of assignment choices that accommodate a range of abilities. This layer allows students to collect general information on the topic. The B level requires students to apply, create, or problem solve with the information gained at the C level. The A level asks students to do a critical analysis of an issue pertaining to the topic of study.
