Teen Anime Club - Minute Manga
Minute Manga for the theme sushi.
This week in our Teen Animanga Club I created a game based on Drawing Ideas: One Minute Drawings. Found on TinkerLab, this article outlines a Minute To Win style activity that's a bit like Pictionary or Win, Lose or Draw. First provide your teens with postcard sized pieces of paper and a variety of markers. You or one of your teens will need a timer; I used my phone. Choose a topic and then quickly draw until time is up. You can share your pictures or have a teen sit out the drawing portion and then judge the entries. This game worked well for with Animanga Club as we could easily find topics all the teens liked. I was impressed by how well some of the teens could draw. I was also a little saddened by the number of teens who felt they couldn't draw and didn't want to participate at all. I would do this activity again with a wider range of possible topics since the teens enjoyed drawing quickly and seeing each other's work. I appreciated that this activity was very inexpensive.
