I then introduced them to the iPad app Sketchbook and we created two layers to work on. The first layer we focused on drawing a block style number with directional lines in the background. (We used black line in similar thicknesses.)
The second layer we focused on coloring our number in one warm color and the background in as many different cool colors they could create. The results were wonderful!
Thanks to my friend Sherry Sanning from Garrett elementary for sharing this lesson idea with me.
