Robots! Kids love robots! This drawing lesson is one that really gets the kids engaged. They look at photos of different types of robots and get to share what they know about them. Then they are led through a drawing lesson in which they may either follow along to draw a simple robot shape or draw one independently. Afterwards, they add all the details they can imagine. They are encouraged to think about what sorts of jobs their robot could do; what background would fit in their plan; and what other objects would fit well in the drawing. They are given tips on how to color neatly to finish the work. When teaching this lesson as a sub, I have never had a disinterested student.
This art sub lesson was designed to be taught by a substitute teacher, art teacher, or classroom teacher. It is fully formed so that all a teacher needs to do is to read the information on each slide as they show the pictures. Questions are included to help lead the students through a discussion.
