In the interest of being speedy (I'm running late this morning) I didn't take time to carefully phrase my last response, but thinking about it I decided to take another minute to say that I didn't mean to say that others were wrong in suggesting not doing blind contour with 6th grade students, just that it's possible to have a good experience with that lesson too, and that I don't think you made a mistake in trying it.
I didn't mean to offend anyone, and I hope that I didn't.

So far a young lady told me today that she had a problem with me calling it "blind". They made great tops out of the paper plates and pencils. They didn't want to use their hands to draw, the tricycle or the plant.
