Activity Pack 3: Share and Collaborate

Activity For Grades K-2 George Lucas, the creative genius behind some of the greatest movies of our time, once said that “a special effect without a story is a pretty boring thing.” In fact, the communication phase of the creative process – presenting and sharing collaborative feedback -- may be the most important. This is the time where creators learn whether their work has the intended effect and, if not, what they can do to improve it. The sharing stage of the process often leads to reimagining and recreating as new ideas and inspirations are formed. For the animated movie Snow White, as many as two million sketches and paintings were created, though only about 166,000 of them were used in the finished film. Drawings for the seven dwarfs alone took more than two years! In this activity, students learn how to provide thoughtful and helpful critique to help their classmates make their doodles even better.

Sharing Space In this activity, students learn how the acronym TAG can help them provide thoughtful feedback to their classmates about the doodles they have created. Strategy: In this activity, students use sentence starters and the acronym TAG to help them confidently provide constructive feedback to others. As students provide collective feedback, they are encouraged to remember TAG: ● Tell something you like ● Ask a question ● Give a positive suggestion You Will Need: ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

1. Set up the two flip charts in front of the room. Place one set of crayons and a blindfold by each flip chart. 2. Ask for three volunteers to come to the front of the room: two will be the artists and one will be the helper. 3. Ask each artist to put on a blindfold (or close their eyes). 4. Explain that they will be given a series of instructions for what to draw on their flip chart paper. They must try, to the best of their ability, to draw it with the blindfold on. One of them will be able to get help from the helper. The other will try to draw the object without help. Choose which student will have a helper and which will not. 5. When both students are ready, read the following directions:  Draw a circle in the middle of your paper in the color blue.  On top of the circle, make a red triangle.  Under the circle, make a green diamond.  Over the green diamond, draw a yellow “x.” 6. Tell students to take off their blindfolds. Re-read the directions, and ask students which picture most closely follows what you read. Ask students why the student with the helper was able to follow the directions more closely. They will probably say that their helper was able to see. Explain to students that this activity teaches us two important lessons about being creative. The first lesson is that our work is often better when we get help from others. The second lesson is that sometimes a friend can see things in our pictures that we can’t. For both of those reasons, it’s really important to get help and feedback from others as we create our doodles! 7. Distribute the practice doodles that students created in the “High Five” activity from the Create activity pack. Remind students that they were first asked to imagine a way that they could help make the world better. Then, they had to imagine what that might look like and draw it. Explain that their next step is to share their creations with their classmates and listen to their classmates’ ideas for how to make them even better. 8. Distribute the Doodle TAG handout. Explain to students that there are three important steps to giving feedback to our friends about their doodles. The first is to tell something we like about the doodle. This is called a compliment. The second is to ask a question about the doodle. This can help us to better understand what the artist wanted to make. The third is to give a helpful suggestion about a way that the artist can make the doodle even better. The suggestion should be positive and helpful.

9. Ask students to pair up with a classmate. Invite them to practice using TAG to give each other helpful feedback. One at a time, they should share their doodle with their partner. Their partner will then Tell them one thing they like about the drawing; Ask a question about the drawing; and Give one positive suggestion for how the drawing could be even better. You may want to model this for the class. 10. Give students ample time to present their doodles and share feedback with their partners. Once all students have presented and shared feedback, ask student volunteers to share one thing they plan to do to make their doodles even better. 11. Encourage students to make improvements to their drawings, using peer feedback. As needed, help students revisit previous steps in the creative process to tinker with and improve upon their creations. 12. Finally, give students time, in class or at home, to finalize and submit their doodles to the Doodle 4 Google competition. Take It Digital! VoiceThread (www.voicethread.com) is an electronic application that transforms media into collaborative spaces. Students (and teachers) can digitally present and share information about visuals and other media. They first upload a picture or video and then record their voices telling its story. Text options are also available. Other students can then offer feedback using video, voice, text and/or doodle! Feedback can be layered to provide rich digital interaction and new ways to share, present, and collaborate.
