Digital Directed Draw: Ice Cream Cones

3 Cones in a Row

The weater is still quite warm so it had me thinking more about cool things. Building snowman isn't very realistic but eating ice cream is something totally cool to do. Drawing ice cream may be even better because it's zero calories!

This digital directed draw is a great starting point for those new to Google Drawing. It only uses two tools: triangle and cloud. Students will get practice with color fill, transparent line, and rotation. If your desired ice cream has mix-ins then there is an opportunity to try out some different tools. The possibilities are endless. The double scoop is by no means the limit. Students could create illustrations to support their reading of Shel Silverstein's Eighteen Flavors poem or any of his other many poems involving ice cream. Or, they could be inspired by Wayne Thiebaud and his ice cream paintings.

Here's the directions.
