I use plexiglass sheets donated by a parent and use dry erase markers. I use it with 6th graders and some of them find it hard to keep the marker from sliding around. All the lines are pretty shaky, but they get the idea. I have also used transparency sheets with a grid printed on them for other "seeing" exercises. They other thing that I use for viewfinders is stretcher strips assembled in a rectangle or square. With just a little modeling clay supporting them, they stay up on the tabletop.
I'd love to see your PowerPoints and whatever else you come up with. Thanks for sharing.

I am working on making lessons from the "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" book, and have gotten to the Plastic Picture Plane part.
What do you all do about that? Do you make them from scratch? I know I made some a few years ago at my previous school, but I don't hardly have that kind of time anymore to make enough for 32 students. Before I made cardboard frames and taped in overhead projector sheets?
Any ideas? Do you just skip those lessons?
Thanks in advance.
If anyone is interested...in a week or so when I finish putting the lessons together, I will be happy to share what I have typed and the PowerPoints. Let me know, and I will email them.
