We also did a "Follow" the Directions " activity during our pet unit. Using the document camera and the Promethean Board, I would draw something and then the children would copy it.
I did not tell them what we were drawing. I wanted them to discover what it was during the process. And the finished project was a dog!
Each child told me something about dogs. I typed it and attached it to their drawings.
These are displayed on one of our bulliten boards in the hall along with a great poster from The American Kennel Club. It is such an adorable display of dogs. Drop by and see them when you are at school.
