Finding easy to prepare and fun warm-ups can be a task more difficult than expected. This specific warm-up is based off the games “Draw Something” and “Telecommunications” and can be played in multiple ways and settings.
PAIRS: Students break off in pairs. One card is given to each student. The teacher can decide what “color group” the students should choose a word from (the orange is easy, and purple is harder). Each student will keep the specific word he/she chooses a secret from his/her partner. The teacher can choose a specific time limit for drawing. When the students are finished drawing, students show their partners their drawings. If the partner guesses the word correctly, the partner receives 2 points (etc).
This is just one way to play the game, possibilities are endless. One great quality of a warm-up is that it can be manipulated in many different ways! Drawing Something_WhyArts?<Back to Artists Page
