Most of my art activities are open ended. The students are to look at the buildings, and talk about what they see. They can use the blank spaces to create their own mock-ups or creations. Open Ended is where the student creates and the Teacher is the "Guide on the Side." If you want more information about Open Ended Art, please download my free Open Ended Art Introduction.
Remember, if you leave feedback for me, you can earn points towards free TPT lessons. And, I can know if your students liked it.
