The student will be able to use Word Art on the computer to create an adjective collage that describes fatherhood.
Talk with the students about what qualities make a good father. Have them choose some of them and make a collage using the Word Art feature in Microsoft Word. Encourage them to be creative and to try different shading, fonts, and backgrounds. Print the collages and have the students make frames for them. They could then give the collages to their fathers for Father's Day.
The students could also be challenged to write a story about a dad using all the words in their collage. The story can be real or made up, but should have proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
