Technology Tip: Enlarging Games
A teacher recently sent me an email asking if I could enlarge all my math attack game boards so that she could use them to demonstrate how to play the games so that the whole class could see.
So, I told her to try this tip (below)…and she did! These photos are ones that she sent me of the school bus themed board enlarged. See the photo with her hand? This lets you see just how big the game board is.
So how did she do it? Well, it’s really quite easy.
Step 1: Open up the “Print” box.
Step 2: Click on the circle beside the “Pages”. Type in the page number you wish to print.
Step 3: Change the tile scale. We changed to 200% and that took the page over to 4 pages. You decide how large you want it to print.
Now, I know there are some of you who are probably saying, “I can’t believe that she really just did a blog post on something so simple!” So let me defend myself….I am really quite proud of myself . I am very, did I say VERY, challenged when it comes to technology and I was surprised that I was actually able to help someone. And second, this is for my fellow “older” teachers who might struggle just as much as I do! Keeping on learning…we can do this…..
Here’s the pack where you can find the school bus game.
