Here is a project we did using The Dot as inspiration.
1. Start by giving each students a paper with a circle drawn on it.
2. Brainstorm all things that you could make out of a circle. Pizza, baseball, moon, wheel, head, etc.
3. In crayon students transform their circle in to a picture.
4. OPTIONAL: Use bingo markers (got mine at the dollar store) to create more dots to complete picture.
