Activity 2: My Five Favorite Foods

In this activity you will create a blank word processing document and then type in a title and your five favorite foods. After you type the foods, you will find a picture for each using MS Word clipart and insert the picture next to the word. You'll need to resize the pictures so they all fit on one page.

When you are done creating the page, print it out and hand it in to your teacher.
