Activity Pack 2: Create Activity for Grades K-2 Leonardo DaVinci was one of the greatest creative minds in history. He used his ability to draw to help him think, sketching cartoons in his notebooks that illustrated things he observed or the beginnings of design ideas. To ignite his imagination, he would draw a simple shape and then imagine what he could make out of it. These drawings included the first conceptualizations of the modern helicopter, a tank, and solar power inventions. Once students have come up with their ideas, the next stage in the creative process is creation. Creation can take many forms, including a drawing, a model, an animation, a sculpture, or a prototype. In this activity, students will draw, sketch, paint, or animate their ideas for making the world a better place. By the end of the activity, they will have a prototype of their design for the Doodle 4 Google competition. It’s important for students to understand that there is no one technique or one set of materials they must use to create their illustrations. It’s also helpful for them to remember that they can go back to the earlier Imagine activity to draw inspiration and change or improve their ideas. This year’s Doodle 4 Google competition theme is: If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place. We can think of no greater purpose for students to show their creativity than to make the world better for others. We can’t wait to see what they create!

High Five In this activity, students learn about the five basic shapes and lines that can help them create any drawing. They then apply this strategy to help them create a doodle. Strategy: This activity uses the “Five Basic” drawing strategy. The theory behind this strategy is that all pictures can be drawn by using five basic shapes and five basic lines. These shapes and lines are simple enough that young children can typically master them. The five shapes include a circle, square, triangle, rectangle, and oval. The five lines include horizontal, vertical, diagonal, wavy, and zigzag. You Will Need: ● Paper ● Pencils ● Art materials such as markers, crayons, paints, colored pencils, or pastels ● Whiteboards (optional) ● Computers or tablets (optional) ● Access to the Internet (optional) 1. Distribute a sheet of paper or whiteboard and pencils, and ask students to make a circle. Then, © 2014 Google Inc. All rights reserved.

invite them to create anything they want with the circle. They can color it, make designs on it, turn it into something else, or add other shapes. It is basically up to them. After one minute, ask students to stop. Invite a few volunteers to share what they made with their circles. Reinforce to students that there was no right or wrong way to use their circle. Each of them created something different. That is what creation is all about. Everyone’s sense of creativity and imagination is different and unique. That’s what makes something creative or imaginative. They are all artists! 2. Share with students that shapes and lines are everywhere! They can use these shapes and lines to help them as they create. Ask students to look around the room. Can they find a circle? A square? A triangle? What about a horizontal (lying down) line? Or a diagonal (tilting) line. Explain that, in this activity, they will learn how five shapes and five lines can help them draw just about anything. 3. Distribute paper or whiteboards to students. Allow them to choose any writing utensil they want. This could include pencils, pens, markers, paints, or pastels. You can even allow students to use an electronic drawing application like the ones below. Encourage them to experiment with different mediums. 4. Ask students to hold up five fingers. Explain that just about any object can be drawn using five shapes or five lines. Using your own paper, whiteboard or electronic drawing application, model the following five shapes for students: circle, triangle, square, rectangle and oval. You may want to explain that these shapes can all be different sizes when they are made and do not need to be perfectly drawn. Invite students to practice drawing each shape. 5. Show students how one shape can help to make others. For instance, two triangles together make a diamond. Half of a circle makes an arc, or a crescent. 6. Introduce the five basic lines: horizontal, vertical, diagonal, wavy and zigzag. Draw an example of each. Then invite students to practice making each one. Again, emphasize that the lines can be any size. 7. Ask students to share ideas for how they could use the five shapes and lines to make the following creations: ● A fish (oval with a triangle at the end, two circles for eyes, wavy lines for the scales) ● A house (square with a triangle on top, squares for window, a rectangle for a door and chimney) ● A flower (a circle in the middle with five ovals for petals, a vertical line for the stem and ovals for the leaves) ● A lollipop (circle with vertical line) ● The sun (circle with triangles or diagonal lines coming from it)

8. Explain that it’s helpful to begin any drawing by making the shapes and lines first. For example,

if they were drawing a bear, they might first draw a large oval for its body, a smaller oval for its head, two round ears, rectangular legs, and round paws. Model drawing these shapes. 9. Explain that students don’t have to use the exact shapes. The shapes and lines are simply guidelines for where the lines should go. After they’ve drawn in the shapes and lines, they can erase lines they don’t need. Or they can just keep in the shapes and lines as part of their drawing. Model adjusting the lines in your bear drawing. 10. If time allows, invite students to look through storybooks to notice the shapes and lines in the pictures they see. 11. Finally, if students completed “A Web of Imagination” from the Imagine activity pack, refer back to the question they answered: If I could invent one thingto make the world a better place, what would it be? Explain that, as part of the Doodle 4 Google competition, they will have a chance to draw or doodle their answer. 12. If you have not already introduced the rules for the competition or shown students examples of previous doodles, now is a good time to do so. Information and previous entries can be viewed at www.google.com/doodle4google. Make sure students understand that their artwork must incorporate the Google logo. Sample Google doodles are available at http://www.google.com/doodles/finder/2014/All%20doodles. 13. Ask students to create a list of possible pictures they could draw to help them illustrate what they would invent to change the world. You may want to have them work with a partner to come up with ideas. 14. Depending on the level of your students, you may want to have them first practice drawing the objects they would like to illustrate for their competition answer. They can do this on regular paper, whiteboards, or electronically using a computer or tablets and the applications below. Encourage them to use the basic shapes and lines to help them draw these objects. 15. Once they have become comfortable with their drawings, invite students to create a prototype of their doodles that they can share and tweak in the “Sharing Space” activity in the Share and Collaborate activity pack. Their prototype doodle must show how they would make the world better, include the word “Google,” and follow the rules of the competition.
