Perhaps it is because I haven't actually start teaching kids and I am jealous of all of you who have, but I felt compelled to whisk out some water soluble Crayola markers and try Natalie's method with just a straight city scene. What fun!! I think we might just do a version of this during the year. I liked that it was a relatively quick process that could be done in one 45-minute period or that it would be a good lesson for a substitute to do.
Using just the Crayola Washable Markers and a piece of copy paper from my printer, this is what I did.
