Narrative Drawing

So, my 4th graders are looking at Storytelling as their enduring theme for this 9 weeks.  One of their first requirements in the curriculum is a Narrative Drawing.  I had a bowl of Nouns, a bowl of Verbs, a bowl of Prepositions and a bowl of places.  Each student pair picked one from each bowl, and worked together to create a spooky sentence from their chosen words.  They could add whatever words they wanted, but they had to use the words I gave them.  We looked at the Disney Villains, and discussed the importance of details when creating a picture that tells a story, and then they sketched.  To complete their drawing, they used overhead film and permanent markers in order to create a more cartoon like effect.
