For all printer problems introduced in this lesson, students are advised to seek help from a teacher. This is to avoid compounding problems by having students take the printer apart or otherwise attempt to fix it. You might want to get to know your printer so you're prepared to fix the simple problems mentioned in the lesson. If someone else is responsible for fixing printer problems, tell the students who they should ask for assistance.
Before students take the lesson, show the classroom's or computer lab's printer to students. Point out the paper tray, ink or toner cartridge, on/off button, and the power plug.
This lesson includes brief references to some major art movements (including the Stone Age, Egyptian, Greco-Roman, Middle Ages, Renaissance, Impressionism, and Modern Art) and specifically references The Snail, by Matisse. You might want to introduce Henri Matisse to the class before they take this lesson. If possible, include a short discussion about how Matisse's work spanned both the Impressionist and Modern Art periods. Then display The Snail as a Modern Art example by Matisse. Have students find the snail in the picture, and note how Matisse uses the placement of cut out paper shapes to suggest the snail's shell and body.
