This is one of the coolest ideas I ever heard!! Having taught grades one
and two, I can also picture second graders doing this pretty well. I'm
going to try it... Thanks, Jennifer.
It might be good to do a pre-activity to warm up. I think the one where
the child chooses a magazine picture and cuts it in half would be good.
They glue it on a sheet of drawing paper, and then draw the missing half
to connect with the magazine picture half. I've done this with grade one
and two, and they are both good at it. In fact, the results are often
amazing ... especially to the kids!!
