Observe and Absorb

Materials: Pencils, Paper (No erasers used) Objects to use for drawing: Cell phone, Bowl, CD Player, CD Cover, Book, Flower, Box, Lamp, Shapes, Chair etc

Step 5. Ask students to select one of the objects and draw it.

Step 6. Show objects again and ask them to take a closer look.

Creative Questions:

The second attempt usually is more accurate compared to the first. Discuss.

1- Which drawing do you think is more accurate?
