Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The Website

This is the website that you will need:
It is a free, non-profit website that has a database of thousands of fonts.
Go to the main page first.
Then click on 'Fonts' in the bar at the top.
The fonts page should look like the second picture. It catargorises the fonts into lots of different sections, such as Brandname, films etc.

Step 2: Choosing a Font

For this tutorial, I chose the Coca-Cola font.
To find it, click on the 'Brandname' catagory.
You should end up with the screen in picture 1.
Scroll down until you find a font that is called 'Loki- Cola'.
This is picture 2.

Step 3: Downloading

Click on the 'Loki Cola' font.
You get the screen on picture 1.
Click 'Download'. I'm using FireFox here, so it comes up with the dialog box in picture 2, the options are- Open, or Save. ALWAYS choose Save. Then press OK. There should be a box like this on other browsers, I haven't tried yet.
On FireFox, once the download is complete, the box appears in picture 3, again, on other browsers there is some sort of download list.

Step 4: Installing

In the doanload list, click on the font you just downloaded, then click on 'Open' in the list that comes up. (Picture 1).
A screen like this next one should appear, it is the coding for the font itself.
At the top there are 2 boxes, 'Print' and 'Install'. Click on install.
Your font is installed, CONCRATULATIONS!!!!
Now for testing the font.....

Step 5: Testing the Font

Open up a Word Processor, then go on the fonts list.
Find 'Loki Cola', and clock on it.
Type loads of warble-garble on the page in the Coca-Cola font!!
