Photo Observation Drawing

Hello everyone, it's been a little while from the last post.
I am working on many different projects with different age group students right now, and here's one with my youngest group.
I went on an inspirational trip last weekend to a Botanical Center, and learned so many things with my family. I wanted to share some of the pictures I took, my perspective on things, and some of the knowlege I got from the trip with my students.
So, I printed out pictures that I took: a few interesting shapes, a few beautiful colors, and a few fun patterned ones as well. Then, I gave the students one of the pictures to draw.

Students needed to draw what they see.
They are not done, but it is so interesting what they selectively see and express differently in their limited white space. Great job!
