Drawing from Observation - with Tape!

Fourth grade started these beautiful observation drawings with tape today. I put a couple potted plants at each table and an assortment of colored masking tape (see the post below to find out what kind!) The students were instructed to use the masking tape on 11"x14" manila paper to draw the plants at their table.

I can't wait to see these finished! What a great learning experience!

Wow! What a great idea for springtime! I know these were fourth graders, but I can't wait to show this to my PreK and K teachers. I'd love to see what the children would do with this.

I've never used tape like this in a lesson, and I LOVE IT! How cool!
