The Sun and Clouds
This worksheet is a drawing activity that features a large, solitary tree in the center of the page with ample space above it. The instructions prompt the student to draw one sun and three clouds at the top of the tree. The task is designed to help students apply their understanding of spatial concepts, specifically identifying and illustrating what is considered the ‘top’ of the image. It allows for creativity while also providing a specific directive to focus the drawing.
The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students the concept of ‘top’ as it relates to objects in a scene. By instructing the students to draw the sun and clouds above the tree, it reinforces the idea that the ‘top’ is the area above most objects in the picture. This activity also helps students practice their drawing and conceptualization skills, as they must decide how and where to place the sun and clouds. In addition, the exercise encourages the children to think about the composition of their drawing in relation to the spatial terms they are learning.
