1. We begin by folding our paper into four even pieces (fold half and half again).
2. We then used a plastic cup as guide to draw a circle for our round shaped emojis. We drew all four emojis first with our black sharpie. Not all emojis turned out to be round. I noticed students' engagement was very positive for this lesson. They seem to really like emojis nowadays.
3. They proceed to paint their picture using watercolor paints.
