Students should be familiar with basic colors, including black, brown, gray, green, orange, pink, purple, red, white, and yellow. Students should also be familiar with shapes, including circles, ovals, rectangles, squares, and triangles.
All the drawings in this lesson relate to physical education tools. Therefore, students should be familiar with PE and basic items used in PE, such as balls, cones, blacktops, and so forth.
Students should be familiar with how magnifying glasses make items look bigger without changing the item's size. In this lesson, students use the Magnifier tool. They should understand that they are taking a closer look at their drawings, not enlarging them permanently.
