At first they were bothered by not getting it the first day, but I presented
it: they were not supposed to get it today, no one ever gets it on day one,
I've done this with 7 & 8th graders, they are doing JH level work.
I drew on the O/H, I continued to start over, I documented each drawing daily
on the tracing paper overlay. I moved the kids near me, if they really had
trouble, so I could watch as they drew and give guidance.
In the end, they loved their work and really got into it. When the project
ended, many took their work home to finish it, and it turned out fabulous,
they were very creative with the ground detail.
We watched a video while finishing the detail, Chicago, Tour of the River by
Boat. I double mounted them and displayed at school, in art shows, entered
the state contest, gave out art certificates.
The only thing missing was the real boat tour in Chicago.
