This was the first project I did with my 2nd graders this year and last year. It is a good starting project to see the skill level of each student. We do a follow the leader drawing and I am the leader drawing on the board. A farm scene is the theme and although they are very similar to each other, there is some creative freedom. The goal for this project is that students do their best to follow along by listening and watching closely.
After knowing my students for a year now, it was interesting to me to see how their drawings match their personalities. Teachers also commented on this as I was hanging the drawings in the hallway.
