Product Description
Back to school Art Fun! Engage children creatively with this Instagram style, 'tech' mobile phone/tablet 'My Summer Memories', art and writing activity.

Children can reflect, and capture a visual essence of their summer break using pictures and words.
Teachers can get to know more about their new classroom individuals in an imaginative way.

This activity invites students to cut out and make their own fold out booklet style art-phone, and then to complete the image making on the front cover and the written elements inside.

The front cover:
Invite students to illustrate their Summer activities with 9 thumbnail doodles or drawings of their choice.
Favorites may include going to the beach, camping, swimming, icecream etc
(a hand drawn color photographed example is included for inspiration)

The 2 fold out inner pages invite a written response to the following prompts:
My favorite memory
Summer was....
I saw...
Something I learnt over the Summer...
I visited...
I created...
My funniest memory...
I really liked.....
I didn't enjoy....

The finished art phone measures 3.7 x 7.3 inches (9.4 x 18.5cm)
UK/Australian spelling template is also included

Considerations, how to use this activity:
How can students move beyond words, and 'draw their answers'?
Consider the space around the images you draw
How do the 9 images look collectively?
Is there an emerging theme or style or color?
What colors do we associate with words?
eg the ocean: turquoise and green

Work imaginatively!
The included example uses a black ball point pen and felt tips

The completed art-phones slip comfortably into a back pocket.
They will work well pegged up as a garland or can decorate a wall, door or bulletin board.

Ideal for use as an icebreaker activity or as an art specific lesson.
