Grades: K - 2
In this engaging and interactive digital lesson, the learners will receive direct instruction and practice with graphics tools. They will use the mouse to select, drag and drop objects, draw shapes, fill using the color palette, magnify drawings, and add text to drawings using tools in the tool box.

Students should be familiar with basic colors, including black, brown, gray, green, orange, pink, purple, red, white, and yellow. Students should also be familiar with shapes, including circles, ovals, rectangles, squares, and triangles.
All the drawings in this lesson relate to physical education tools. Therefore, students should be familiar with PE and basic items used in PE, such as balls, cones, blacktops, and so forth.
Students should be familiar with how magnifying glasses make items look bigger without changing the item's size. In this lesson, students use the Magnifier tool. They should understand that they are taking a closer look at their drawings, not enlarging them permanently.
|Math.Content.2.G.A.1||Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.|
|Math.Content.K.G.A.1||Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.|
|Math.Content.K.G.A.2||Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.|
|Math.Content.K.G.B.4||Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/''corners'') and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).|
