My students have always found drawing realistic eyes a challenge. I’ve seen it all from circles, dots, cat eyes, simple lines, to no eyes all! Teaching kids how to draw an eye, is an important lesson not only in observation but patience too.
With technology and YouTube so readily available to us, we have at our fingertips tutorials and lessons ready to inspire and teach. Check out this video and be sure to use it next time in class as part of your lesson. Definitely show the younger one to to inspire them with the possibility of what they can do.
Why not get your students to create their own video tutorials as part of their authentic assessment piece?
