We can take advantage of Word 2007′s drawing tools to easily add pizazz to your Notebook lessons.
In Word ’07 click on “Insert” from the menu bar and click on “Shapes.” Choose any shape. After inserting a shape, Word ’07 opens up the “Format” option on the menu bar. Choose “Shape Style” to change the color of your shape. Use the “Shadow Effects” tool to control the shadow of your image. Use “3-D Effects” to control the 3-dimensional view of your shape. The 3-D effects button is only active when you have initially created a basic 2-dimensional shape. This is a quick way to create shapes with shadows and 3-D effects.
These shapes can then be easily copied and pasted into Notebook. You can add text and group the text with the shape to create 3-D banners and buttons. You can also save the shapes to your “My Content” folder for use in future lessons.
Have fun creating and being creative.
