Robots are such a great theme for an art lesson! Students can let their imaginations go wild while thinking of all kinds of tasks that the robots can perform. Robots also offer a chance to practice a few different lesson objectives, as the examples below will demonstrate.

You might say that I’m a little assessment obsessed! I’m so obsessed with assessments, that I made my master’s project about assessment. Wait, what … YOU LOVE ASSESSING! You might be saying to yourself. Well, no, in fact I don't like assessing. I’d much rather be making art projects. But that is why I made it my mission to figure out the best way to do this. If I’m going to spend a great deal of my time doing something, I want to know that I’m doing it the best way possible.

Before you start sketchnote taking, it's important to think about which visual structure you will use. Each structure has advantages and will work best for different kinds of information.
The flowing structure works best for a sequence of events, functioning like a timeline.
The flowing structure also works for information that branches out like the branches of a tree.
I love using the wacky birds as a drawing lesson with students. They are so much fun to draw and students can relax a little knowing that things don't have to be perfect.
Here are some steps to turn wacky bird drawings into fun chalk pastel art.
