Does your class need a break from the daily grind of work-work-work? First graders through Adults will enjoy this teacher-led drawing activity which takes the letter "A" and converts it into a picture they will be proud of by simply adding straight or curved lines. They will be amazed at the end result and a drawing they will be proud of will suddenly appear like magic. This digital file will give you simple, step-by-step instructions how to do the drawing.
This exercise does not require the student to have special artistic skills and for the younger grades it can serve as a measure of how well the student is able to follow simple instructions.
Those students with artistic abilities may be inspired to create other pictures from other letters in the alphabet. Sam Moore
