In Drawing Lab this week, students were given the task of drawing living things based solely on written descriptions. We started the lesson with this description: “This animal has 4 legs, stripes, and does not eat meat/other animals.” This was a poor example of a description because zebras, chipmunks, and skunks all fit the requirements. Knowing how important details are, the students set to work. Each student had to draw one imaginary thing and one real thing (which they may or may not have been able to guess at). They were great detectives!
