Keep your students busy when they have finished their work by giving them a sketchbook assignment. There are two different lists included here. I use one list one year with my 3rd-5th grade sketchbooks, and the other list the following year. Each list has 30 ideas of things to draw. It includes ideas such as:
-Draw an outfit you would wear on tacky day. Use different patterns on each piece of clothing.
-Design a tiny city for bugs to live in.
-Draw a self-portrait with you having a bad hair day.
