This is a simple and fun way to teach contour or echo lines, and also teach some simple warm and cool colors.
Start with a 9x12 piece of paper. Have the student write their name in the center. I prefer cursive.
Then, with a ruler draw a slanted line that goes THROUGH your name evenly.
On one side start with the 'echo' line or contour line, going around JUST that side. Keep going all the way out to the edges. Do the same thing on the other side, and match up the lines if you can.
Outline in sharpie.
Have the students pick three warm colors, and three cool colors...then color in a pattern. Warm on one side, cool on the other.
They love these and they are VERY simple to teach!
