|Wassily Kandinsky's "Man on a Horse"|
|I love how my teaching partner thought of showing the students how the art was divided into pieces on the Smart Board.|
Using the app, Drawing Pad, students used the paint brushes to draw their part of the picture.
Since I had more students than puzzle pieces, I assigned two students to work on the same piece. But only one of their iPads would be used at the end for the collaborative project.
After the students completed their piece we put the iPads together to see how we did. As students brought up their iPads one student was assigned to wake up the iPads when they went to sleep.
Drawing Pad is an app we use a lot in my 2/3 combination class. You can purchase it for $1.99 at the App Store. We use it in math instead of little whiteboards. When I demonstrate a new concept to the class, they do it along with me in Drawing Pad. We also use Drawing Pad for art across the curriculum, to insert our own art work into our writing in apps such as Book Creator or Pages. For the holidays each student created a picture in Drawing Pad for their parents that we put into small frames from the dollar store. It was the perfect gift for parents!
Have you used Drawing Pad in your classroom? How do your students use their iPads to create art?
