Early Finishers Worksheet - Create a Turtle in Disguise

Here is a worksheet for early finishers that you, your art sub, and your students will have fun with.

Kids love drawing cartoon figures but they also like seeing reference material to inspire them.  This worksheet for early finishers has the lightly drawn outline of a turtle, surrounded by boxes of sample items a student might like to add.  They can add the designs given and combine them with ones from their imaginations.

Students end up with an original cartoon turtle in this no fail activity.

This is in my TeachersPayTeachers store, Art Sub Lessons, for just 99 cents.

Art Sub Plan Idea - Easy Shape Tracing

This lesson would be great for an art sub with just a small bit of tweaking. I can't imagine leaving a lesson that includes black tempera paint, but there are work arounds.

From experience, I know that kids love tracing. Cans. Coffee lids. Flat tools. The more diverse, the better. Crayons are a perfect medium here and great to leave with subs.

Get inspiration from this gorgeous lesson from The Moffatt Girls.

Early Finishers Worksheet - Create a Frog in Disguise

Early finishers worksheets are great to have on hand. Subs will especially love them. When kids declare that their work is absolutely finished, it is such a help to hand them something creative to work on.  They can engage in a fun activity that gives them a creative outlet.
