During circle time or another daily routine, pass out a detailed image of an artwork.
Ask young children to describe the image. Use a large sheet of paper or wipe board to list the brainstorm ideas. The adult may have to offer guiding questions to encourage more description.
Using a separate paper or space on the wipe board, ask children to describe the larger image. Encourage them to locate the original detail in the larger image.
- What do you think this could be?
- What do you see that makes you say that?
- How many different shades of the same color do you see?
- What else could this be?
