New! Drawing the Exact Time on a Clock
How do you show time on an analog clock? That's the question posed in the final video of a three-part series on telling, writing, and measuring time. A review walks through the concept that a clock is composed of hours and minutes. The lesson focuses on actually drawing an exact time on the face of a clock.
Draw Inference From the Text
"Making an inference requires you to think about your own experiences and other texts along with the explicit information the text provides." This is an excellent resource that will walk your young writers step-by-step through the process of how to draw valid inferences by analyzing parts of a text. It begins with a very basic example that clearly demonstrate the process, and then concludes with a detailed overview of the questions you should ask yourself when making an inference, an illustration of the meanings of explicit and inferred, and finally how to refer to the text to support your ideas.

Leaves of Three
Now here is a really helpful lesson that incorporates plant parts and the all-so-important identification of poison ivy. First graders examine all the parts common to plants; stems, roots, leaves, and flowers. They then turn their attention to one plant with a poisonous touch. They read a very cute story about a pig who outsmarted a wolf using poison ivy, look at several pictures of the ivy in various environments, and then discuss why poison ivy makes you itch. The lesson culminates with a summative assessment where the class draws, writes, and labels mini-posters warning others about the poisonous plant.
Oh, Baby! What Baby Animal Is That?
Parents and children tend to look alike, but they are also very different. Little learners examine the similarities and differences found in various adult/infant animal pairs. They discuss what full-grown and infant animals look like, and then play a matching game where they match adult animals to their babies. After the game, youngsters draw and/or write a sentence describing what they've learned.
Draw T. rex
Students explore how scientists determine what prehistoric animals looked like based on their bones. They draw a picture of the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex by copying an image from an overhead or book.
Middle schoolers investigate the use of proportion using gesture drawing as the subject matter. They create a painting using the elements of art and principles of design.
Scale Drawings of Dinosaurs
Students, working in groups, make scale drawings of dinosaurs. The four groups then assemble their assigned parts into one composite drawing.
Listen and Draw
Students use their visualizing and interpreting skills to produce original writings and drawings. First, they listen to an adaptation of William Clark's description of the sage grouse. They form mental images that they translate into drawings of the bird.
In this drawing in science worksheet, students read about what is needed to complete a drawing in order to communicate ideas and discoveries in science. Students analyze a drawing of a volcano and indicate the problems with the drawing. They also practice drawing a ladybug and label it's body parts.
Guided Reading with David's Drawings by Cathryn Falwell
First graders participate in a guided reading lesson. In this guided reading lesson, 1st graders read David's Drawings by Cathryn Falwell, which is a realistic fiction book on the DRA:16 level.

Exercise in creating drawings for field notebooks
Learners (with a partner) draw and describe a leaf in its natural setting, and then re-find leaves drawn and described by classmates. The point is to have them start to think about observations in science, what to put in a field notebook, to pay attention to detail, and to gain confidence in drawing.
Alebrijes Colored Drawings
Students respond to the story of Linares by coming up with ideas for their own fantasy animals to draw and decorate with patterns. They draw the fantasy animal on black construction paper and add colored patterns to the drawing.
Rhythm and Art: Gesture Drawing
Young scholars explore connections between non-verbal language and art. In this visual and auditory art lesson, students investigate the science of sound and principles of drawing. They then use various genres of music to directly apply that knowledge to their own process of drawing.
Applying Proportionality in Scale Drawings
Sixth graders examine a blue print and discuss the reasoning behind using blue prints. For this proportionality lesson, students collaborate with their teammates to create a scale drawing. Once that is complete, 6th graders write a journal entry explaining the different ways to use a scale drawing.
