Really? You think this is too tight for them? I must explain to you that the
kids are doing MOST of the talking during the discussion while busily taking
notes. They don't have TIME to get bored or antsy. The whole
lesson/discussion is entirely interactive. They are making all kinds of
lines and drawings while copying all my notes on the overhead. They are also
drawing ribbon examples. They are NOT sitting still listening to a boring
art history lesson. I finish this in enough time for them to start their
projects the same period. Time goes pretty fast with this lesson. Their
drawings generally take about a week for them to complete.
