My first year of teaching I came up with this lesson. The kids started with a sheet of paper. I gave them rulers and started out with simple instructions. I told them to draw two straight lines and one curved line. I told them to make sure they "exited"the paper with some lines. Then I told them to add a few more lines of their own choice. I told them they had to incorporate their names somewhere. Then they picked a color scheme and filled in the rest with glue and yarn.
