Hi Brent, I teach 8th grade. I found that an assignment that kids really
like is to draw cars using 2 or 3D. I have a bunch of little toy cars
from my kids and I take them to school in a bag and hand them out around
the room--they don't get a choice, but they can negotiate a trade if their
neighbor is willing. The kids are really impressed because their drawings
look so real and dramatic. I have also used an idea of someones (I can't
remember who, sorry) to buy little rectangular candy bars (ie hersheys, or
mars bars etc.--little halloween types). They have to draw the candy in 2
or 3pt. persp.and create something out of it--like a Hershey bar raft
adrift in a root beer ocean--or a kit kat lion jumping out of the jungle.
Kids really like it--they can eat the candy whenever they want, but they
have to do the letters in perspective also (gets hard) so they need to
keep the packaging. This assignment is so successful I have used it in
the unholy hell of the last week of school. Sid
