Description

If you’ve never tried a SCOOT game before, you are in for some fun!  

This gets your students up and moving, which is proven to be good for learning.  

Students will “scoot” to 5 different locations to complete an abstract drawing.  At each station, they will add a different element to their drawing.  Then they will take a texture and pattern card to add a texture and pattern to their drawing.  Of course, there are variations; if you’ve never tried a “SCOOT” lesson before, you are in for some fun! This gets your students up and moving, which is proven to be good for learning. Students will “scoot” to 5 different locations to complete an abstract drawing. At each station, they will add a different element to their drawing. Then they will add textures, patterns, and color to their drawings. Of course, there are variations you can try.  

The cool thing about this lesson is that every student’s art will look different! And with the ability to add textures, patterns, and color, the possibilities for their final pieces are endless. You can have up to 30 locations (one for every student), so each student will travel to 5 different drawing locations and see 5 different elements. Students will travel in numeric order, starting with the number on the drawing card at their own seat. I tried out all 30 variations by selecting elements and arranging the order to ensure that all combinations would be interesting.

The elements that the students add to their pictures are based on the “5 elements of shape” taught by Mona Brooks in her book, Drawing with Children. So if you’ve introduced your students to the 5 elements of shape, this is a superb follow-up activity. It allows your students to use the 5 elements of shape in a non-threatening way. Even if you are unfamiliar with the book, the elements of circles, dots, curved lines, angled lines, and straight lines are simple and easy to draw. No explanation about them is necessary; it’s just a bonus if you are trying to teach them already. I’ve included a definition card for each element for your word wall or bulletin board. 

 

Your students will:

  • Create an abstract drawing using the 5 elements of shape.
  • Add textures to their artwork.
  • Add patterns to their artwork.
  • Finish the artwork with color media.  

What you get:

  • Teacher Instructions – 4 pages
  • Student Instructions – 4 pages
  • Numbered Drawing Cards (30) – 8 pages
  • Texture Ideas (30) – 2 pages
  • Pattern Ideas (30) – 2 pages
  • Definitions – 1 page

>>>>> A total of 21 pages!

 

The texture and pattern idea pages are a great reference for other projects as well!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I used this as a way for students to have some form of reference for abstract. They loved it and I think their projects turned out really cool! We ended up using oil pastel and baby oil for our medium.
