My greatest challenge in using Illustrator is getting the hang of the pen tool. If anyone knows of a simple, easy tutorial online, please share! Honestly, I just need to take the time to play around with it and use it. Today’s crash course did just that for me. Here is a sample slide from the Water Cycle Quiz which includes the wave pattern at the bottom of each slide. I wanted to keep the design of the slide simple so it does not distract from the content the students need to complete.
