2nd Grade Cocoa Cups

Second graders worked on their first version of still life or drawing from life a few weeks ago.  We looked at some coffee cups, and paid close attention to the fact that the top and the bottom of the mugs were circles but when we put them on the tables in front of us these circles got squished into ovals (ellipses).  After some careful observation students each tried to draw their cup looking like it was sitting on a table and then they were able to add patterns and details.  I love how whimsical these turned out.
