Jasmine, this has worked pretty well for me this year. Students are
instructed to look through magazines for photos of one animate (alive) and
one inanimatie (not alive) image (no illustrations). These images are
clipped and taped (two little pieces of tape should do) to legal size
(photocopy) paper. They should be arranged in some way that creates
interest, not just slapped down. On another sheet of paper, students draw
realistically the two images. This usually takes at least one period. Next
period (or substitute day) students are presented with a handout showing
different ways to make a grid (some straightforward, some wonky--wavy lines
or thin and thick lines). They choose one or come up with one of their own.
On a larger sheet of paper, they graph the first drawing up two or three
times bigger. These lessons seem to be within the ken of most substitutes
and if you can get one or two kids going ahead, they can show the others.
Also, all you need for materials is paper, scissors, little tape, bigger
paper, rulers. Works for me! Peggy
