Drawing Conclusions Lesson Plans
Teachers can use drawing conclusions lesson plans to help students learn how to connect their background knowledge to text.
Blue Ribbon Readers: Drawing Inferences
Model for young readers how to use illustrations, chapter titles, and events in a story to draw inferences and make predictions. Learners then practice these essential comprehension strategies by drawing inferences for another section of a text. In addition, they validate their assumptions with specific references. There are four interactive, online games that pupils can access in order to gain further practice. A fine language arts lesson for elementary schoolers!
Gesture Drawing: Art, Drawing, Fine Arts
Gesture drawing is many things: a way to see, a technique of drawing, an exercise, a defined scribble, and a finished style. In the activities that follow, gesture drawing will be demonstrated in many of its facets.
Drawing with Linear Perspective
Drawing with linear perspective requires spacial and mathematical reasoning as well as an understanding of the Renaissance period. Fifth graders discuss the first painting created with linear perspective, then analyze several others found throughout history. They use the very specific geometric formula, their rulers, lines and rays to compose a piece full of perspective.
Drawing: Hearing...Seeing...Ears vs. Eyes
Students explore drawing based on two sets of directions. In this drawing lesson, students draw a portrait or still life based on a verbal description (left brain). Students then use drawing techniques that access the right side of their brain. This lesson is designed for mature art students.
Pen and Ink Drawing
Learners hone their drawing techniques to create a nature-inspired piece of art. They practice hatching, cross hatching, stippling, and shading. They discuss how each method is better suited for creating specific elements in nature such as grass, water, and leaves. A well-outlined procedure and vocabulary list make this a good art lesson.
Students create a collaborative drawing. In this cooperation skills lesson plan, students are divided into small groups and are given art supplies. Students decide on a topic for their illustration and create the drawing on large paper. Students work together to complete the project. As an extension activity, students can create a collaborative story about their drawing.
Clowning Around: Drawing
Kids create a clown out of shapes. They work to show emotions while practicing their drawing skills. Pupils use circles, triangles, squares, oil pastels, and their imagination to draw, color, and decorate a sad or happy clown. Tip: Have each child write two simple sentences describing the shapes used in creating the clown.
Draw A Face
Students discover how to sketch a face. In this sketching lesson, students explore the steps to construct a facial drawing. Spacing and symmetry of facial features are explored.
Drawing Conclusions-Miss Navajo
Learners practice the higher order thinking skill of drawing conclusions. In this language lesson, students use the Miss Navajo pageant to discuss the role of language in selecting a winner. They view portions of the pageant, and try to draw conclusions about the effect of the language portion on the overall outcome of the pageant. Learners use the information from the video segment to complete graphic organizers.
New! Task: Miniature Golf
"Fore!" All right, no one really yells this out in miniature golf, but this well-defined activity will have your charges using lots of numbers in their unique design of a miniature golf hole. Included in the activity criteria is the geometric difficulty of scoring a hole-in-one, creative use of material, and best use of space. Designers need to include scale drawings of their designs complete with calculations and a report explaining the design. This a fantastic lesson that will get your kids motivated and thinking mathematically.
My Online Community
The Internet isn't a place, but it is made up of real people. As your learners will find out, it is a way to connect people and ideas to build a larger and more global community. They'll draw, discuss, and explore vocabulary as they learn about what the Internet is and how they can use it to connect with the community. Please note: The lesson does promote the importance of community in relation to the Internet, but fails to augment that reality with other options, such as playing with friends at the park, joining a club, or being a community volunteer.
Scaled Rubber Band Drawings
Students demonstrate the process of creating a scaled rubber band enlargement of a simple drawing. They observe and discuss a teacher-led demonstration, and create a scaled rubber band enlargement of simple drawings and their invention blueprints from a previous instructional activity.
Scale Drawing of Earth
Students name the different layers of the Earth. In this earth science lesson, students calculate the thickness of each layer. They draw a scaled model of the Earth.
Drawing Lewis Structures
In this drawing Lewis structures worksheet, students read about the 5 steps taken to draw Lewis structures for atoms and molecules. These include identifying the valence electrons, placing pairs of electrons between atoms to be bonded, and moving unshared pairs of electrons so that each atom has eight electrons.
What Makes Shadows? Observing and Drawing Shadows
Students make accurate drawings of a classmate's shadow. They note position of the sun in the sky. They identify a connection between the direction of the shadow and the location of the sun. They observe changes in shadows over time.
Problem Solving: Draw a Diagram
This problem solving PowerPoint presents a detailed, logical sequence of steps to follow in order to solve a story problem. The thinking processes described are given in text and represented by a visual model. After discussing the example, students draw a diagram and follow similar problem solving steps using a new story problem.
