Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of aquatic mammals. Unlike fish, dolphins are warm-blooded and nurse their young. Most species prefer the warmer waters of the tropic zones, but some prefer cold climates.

Dolphins do not need to drink water. They get their water from their food, which is the fish they eat. They feed largely on fish and squid, but a few, like the killer whale, feed on large mammals, like seals.

Dolphins swim in groups, or schools, to protect themselves. Sharks and Killer whales eat dolphins. By sticking together, the dolphins have a better chance of avoiding trouble.

3. Photos

You can get the picture from inside Word, using the INSERT>Online Pictures...or open a new tab in Chrome and search for a picture online and copy, then paste into your document.

Side photo

  1. Insert any photo you want to go beside the list.
    If it's a wide type of picture, use the Crop tool to get rid of part of the side so it becomes a square/tall type of picture. 
  2. Add Text Wrapping - "Square". 
  3. Move it up to the right of the bulleted list, not too far in the margin, lined up with the top of the first bullet. 
  4. Resize the picture so it's not too big.

It should be something like this...

Bottom photo

The second picture needs to be the entire animal (for labelling body parts). It should have a white background.  

  1. Have your cursor at the bottom of the page on the last empty line.
  2. Then insert/copy a picture into your document. 
  3. Resize it so everything is still on one page.
  4. Center it using the tool button on the HOME toolbar.

If you add wrapping, you'll see an anchor - to fix it, you'll have to set it back to the default/top one "in line with text".

4. Labels

Insert a text box

From the INSERT toolbar, go to "Text Box" and choose the bottom option "Draw Text Box". 

Click and drag out a small text box. Then click in the box and type out a part, ie "tail".


Select the text inside the box and change the font type to "Tahoma" and pump up the size to "14".

Change the box size so it fits but not lots extra (click and drag in a circle/square at the edge of the box).

Text Box: no outline

  1. Adjust the size of the box if it's way wider/taller than the word. Click and drag from one of the sides and/or bottom circles to change the box size.
  2. Select the box (click in the box, then click on the border of the box to select it). 
  3. Then right-click or go to the Format toolbar, and set Shape Outline to none.

More labels

You want to label 4 more parts of the animal with text boxes. Position boxes to the left/right and above the photo. Try to space them out nicely. Position them so they're below the Anatomy heading.

  1. Repeat the above procedure:
  2. Insert/draw text box.
  3. Type text inside.
  4. Select text inside - change font type to "Tahoma" and pump up size to "14".
  5. Right-click on the border of the box and change Outline to "no outline".
  6. Move the box into position.

5. Arrows

Now add arrows pointing to the parts. Go to the INSERT toolbar, click on the arrow tool under Shapes

Click and drag out one arrow - from one of the labels towards the part it's labelling. If you click off you will see a basic thin blue arrow.

Click on the arrow and you will see a FORMAT toolbar appear - go to that and use the drop-down menu for more Shape Styles...

... and change the line color/thickness so it's the thickest style and a different color.

Add more arrows, just copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) more and then change position and directions so you get something like this...
