Kids LOVE to draw cartoons!
You will find that students who may not feel confident about drawing with love this lesson because you will guide them with step by step instructions using simple shapes. And more experienced artists will have fun telling a story and getting creative with this fun and invitation to tell a story.
You can keep it simple - using crayons- or go really complex with taking everything from your arsenal - watercolor paints, crayons, markers and colored pencils- and letting your students go wild.
This is a great stand alone lesson for a sub or if you just want a fun mini break during test week. You can also add a math component and a lesson on gradients of color and color mixing.
