Second grade students made these zentangle leaves with lots of different Sharpie patterns. I challenged them to try to make all 10 patterns different. Those that did and drew with lots of detail, had amazing results.
• Drawing paper
• Sharpie marker, fine tip
• Sharpie marker, ultra fine tip
PREP: Print a leaf template page for each student
1. Students trace the outline drawing with a fine tip marker. The also trace the veins so that their leaf now has lots of sections.
2. The sections are filled with lots of patterns, using the ultra fine tip markers. Challenge students to make small, detailed patterns that are all completely different.
