Draw the Mayflower diagramI showed my students how to draw the Mayflower last fall and was happy to see so many make beautifully detailed ships. Try drawing on kraft paper and those sails just pop off the page.

• View and download Mayflower Tutorial

• Print of tutorial for each student
• Brown kraft paper
• Sharpie, black, fine tip
• Colored pencils

PREP: Print or draw guidelines on each paper.
1. Students draw the ship with a pencil according to the tutorial.
2. The drawing is traced with a black marker.
3. The ship is colored using brown for the boat, white for the sails, and blue for the water.

    Actually, pencil crayons are best for getting the whitest white on the sails. Thanks for asking, I should have added that.
