These worksheets are great for sub plans, early finishers, or a quick simple drawing exercise. The package contains two mystery scramble worksheets. One is a bird and the other is a seahorse. These can be done directly on the grid provided or you can place a thin sheet of paper on the grid and do the drawing on clean paper so you do not see the grid lines on the finished drawing. They can be finished off in marker or in pencil. These are great for building observational skills and confidence. As a bonus, they are fun to do. I love having these on hand for emergencies or whenever I have to be out of the room.
The seahorse drawing is more complex than the bird drawing which makes these great for classes with multiple ability levels. The seahorse is perfect for students that are more skilled in obsservational drawing or love a challenge. They learn how to break complex images and patterns down into smaller easier to manage shapes and learn to draw what they really see and not what they think they see. They develop patience and understanding of different line qualities.
The puzzle format makes it fun and challnges them to create an organized process for marking off completed boxes and finding the next one to draw.
