We start with a few video's....
- Last Year's Winners (plays while they come in the room)
- Introducing a Matteo Lopez (a past winner who is about their age)
- This Year's Theme
- A Message from the Doodlers
- A Doodle Demo
And then they work on planning out their image. I created a worksheet for them to start thinking about what to do. They answered the who, what, where, when and why of their drawing and then sketched it out. When they had a sketch ready, they could get their "official" doodle paper. (download your's here)
Here is a peak at what they have done....
|My best day ever would be seeing animals I had never seen before.|
|My best day ever would be spending time underwater with all the sea creatures.|
|My best day ever was spent riding bikes and eating ice cream with my friends.|
|My best day ever would be spent at Hogwarts.|
|My best day ever will be when I go to outerspace... with a pig.|
|My best day ever would be winning a gold medal at state swimming.|
p.s. I do this with my 5th graders... 6th graders can choose to participate but it is a requirement for the 5th grade.
