Excel is an electronic spreadsheet program that can be used for storing, organizing and manipulating data. Among all the Office applications, most students find excel very boring. I tried to search for excel activities online so that students will realize that there is more to what excel can do other than formulas and manipulating data. I found this file, thanks2, wherein students use the photo bucket to fill in the cells with colors. The picture below is the sample I showed to the students. Then I let them make their own design.
In Sheet 2 , I let the students draw a figure in a Excel worksheet using any clipart as their guide. Here are some sample designs made by the fourth year students. This design can be used as a pattern for cross stich.
