Exact Descriptive Writing – Coding to Draw
Today We will be doing an activity called Exact Descriptive Writing. we will be experimenting with describing how to draw a very specific picture. To do this students will require a piece of blank copy paper (Mr. Ewert will supply in class), a pencil, and an eraser (if students wish). Students will first practice with an example demonstration from Mr Ewert. Then they will practice with a given picture and a partner. Then, students will have 20 minutes two hand write a very exact, descriptive piece, in proper paragraph format that accurately describes how to draw a picture of their own creation. Warning: this takes very exact detail and refined thinking. this will wish to do a fairly simple picture, however, the parameters for your picture are below. Be sure to follow all criteria for your picture.
Your picture must have:
-at least 3 different shapes
-at least 3 of the four quadrants (quarters) must have something in them (you can’t pile them all together
-at least 2 of the shapes cannot touch the edge of the paper
-you must keep it SIMPLE
If you are absent. I will be streaming the live lesson of this on teams at 2:10 PM today. I advise you to watch the teams broadcast on the ELA channel if you are absent. You will then need to complete this task at home with assistance.
