Order and reveal is based on the idea that objects are layered, and one object can slide behind another. This method is really fancy. You can hide any text by matching the text color to the background color. Then, by ordering another object to slide behind your hidden object, you have revealed your hidden object. Let me share with you an example. Here we have the parts of an animal cell, and for my reveal, I'm going to need to go to my Gallery and grab myself a Magnifying Glass.
So I'm going to the Gallery tab, I've already typed in the word magnify, I hit the word Search, and here are my results under Pictures. And I'm going to go with the magnifying glass that has the blue lens, because I have white text typed. I'm going to retract that, I wipe, white text typed, and I want that blue lens to show off the white text. So, right now, when I move the magnifying glass around, it's not showing any of the text. And the reason why, is because right now, when I threw that magnifying glass on the page, it was on the top layer.
And we need that magnifying glass to slide behind our hidden text. So I'm going to select the magnifying glass, I'm going to go ahead and unlock that, I'm going to select it, and I'm going to drop down menu to Order, and Send to the Back. Now, immediately, the moment I send it to the back, it's now an effective tool for revealing the hidden text. Very nice. Order and reveal is a great reveal, but it also takes a good amount of time to create.
The moving of one object behind another really demonstrates the power of the note ware, notebook software, and never ceases to amaze. Ordering and reveal, can be an excellent tool, for capturing student interest.
