Crowded Elevators, 3rd Grade

Every month my friend from college, who is also an elementary art teacher like to get together at our favorite place, Panera. We discuss lots of things, but mainly new art lessons. Being young in this, we need ideas all the time, so this project is a product of our monthly get-togethers. She did this project with her students, and so I decided to try it. I was thrilled with the results. The goal was to get the kids to understand how to draw people in front of one another and overlapping bodies. We made their "crowds of 5" in elevators. They could do their families, a bunch of girls shopping, skateboarders (as you will see), doctors in a hospital elevator...the options are endless. I am really happy about the way they turned out. I made a bulletin board recently of them, and the teachers cannot believe how well the kids did.
