I love these. What a great line design assignment. I bet it has a very high succes rate.
these are really cool!
Thanks for posting this lesson. I used it with my 4th graders at the end of the year when the schedule is a bit unpredictable of if I see all students or some when I should (field trips, track and field helpers, other end of year activities). It really kept them engaged. If you didn't already mention this, I had to REALLY reinforce the idea of drawing the curved lines SLOWLY and CAREFULLY... because those kiddos that want to rush through ended up working sloppy, not liking their work and "giving up" on the whole project. So, I learned some lessons along the way!Thanks again!
oops. Almost forgot to add another "tip". I had students tape the two colored pencils they were using to the back of their paper so it wasn't a struggle to get started right away each class. We used blue painters tape.
Karen, that's a good tip...if you don't see 100+ 4th graders in a weeks time. I'd be out of colored pencils if they all did that!!! ha ha Though..it would be easier to deal with.
Hi Mr. EJust found your site... Love this lesson, think the kids would too! How did you get them started on this one? Do you have the steps posted somewhere? Thanks,Mrs. S
