To input or output graphics you'll need a library such as SDL or Allegro. For opening files, try this tutorial.

It sounds like you might need to spend a little more time on the basics of programming with C before you tackle your game project. If you really have no idea how to start you should talk to your teacher and see if you can get more help.

I will just add cplusplus.com's C library reference section may be useful as well.

Especially with regards to the library to use. I would ask if they have a recommended library, as if you use one that they are not familiar with, it could make it harder for them to understand your code.

I wrote a tetris game in C, using SDL, OpenGL and GLEW. You can find the source-code here: https://github.com/goranm/wtetris

Although, I would still echo what others have said: If you don't really have a good base of C experience under your belt, you're going to have an extremely difficult time writing an actual game in C (no matter how conceptually trivial, and no matter what libraries you decide to use).
