Drawing to Learn

In art class we learn about many different kinds of drawing. Sometimes we make drawings to communicate or express ourselves. Sometimes we draw something in order to learn more about it. Today's fifth grade has been learning about the respiratory system in science class.

For some people, the best way to study something is to make a drawing of it and label. That's what we did. First I demonstrated step by step on the board while the kids followed along and drew and then labeled their parts of the drawing. I had to brush up on my fifth grade science facts so I knew what I was talking about, so I think we all learned something today.
