Each student practiced drawing the different types of lines one at a time together as a class. For instance, the mother helper said, "Draw a zig zag line going from one corner of your paper to another." The important thing is that the lines intersect and cross at different angles on the paper.
The students then traced over their pencil lines with a permanent marker (I know kind of scary, but they did a great job keeping the ink on the paper). After they traced their line they colored each space (or shape) a different color. You will want to demonstrate this first. The students tried to make the spaces that touched each other be a different color. This part does take time. We had 45 min. for the lesson and most took the entire time (not counting the demonstration and mini lesson) to complete their art project.
This is my daughter's finished project. The students were all SO excited with their artwork. The last thing I did was mount their art projects onto a piece of black construction paper before displaying them in the hallway.
