Principles of Design Game

Created on August 17, 2014 by msmeyers

This is a game for the first day of high school art. You pass out the cards to the students (7 in total). The student start by asking the question on the card with the star. Another person's card will have the answer, so they show it and then ask the next question on the bottom of their card... so on and so forth till it loops back around to the first person. Simple review of the Principles of Design.

    Great Cards, thanks...I think I'll add this as a card sort game for vocabulary/review prior to unit test.
