Bike Sketches

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

We finished up a three week bike unit a few days ago.  Every morning over half the school got on their bikes and rode around the neighbourhood and paths along the river.  What a great start to the day!  On our last day, the students biked about 11 km to a nearby park.  Since the bikes were parked at the school for several days, I incorporated them into an art lesson.  I gave each student seven different-sized pieces of paper, a pencil, and an eraser.  They had to sketch different parts of their bike, but it had to be a "zoomed in" view.  After the drawings were complete, the students arranged them on a piece of black construction paper.  

Here are a few pictures:
