In Drawing Lab, the 3rd-5th graders were given a choice of how they’d like to draw leaves.  Choice #1: Write a description of the leaf and create a large, detailed drawing of it.  Choice #2: Draw 6 small sketches with sharpie…no erasing.  Choice #3: Draw 3 blind contour images of the leaf.

The students loved the freedom of having a choice of method, and as a result, the pride in their work was quite obvious.

Here are a couple drawings from a 5th grade class (sorry, I didn’t get any photos of #3):
