Divide class into teams about 10 students.
Students use textbook to find garments in the fashion magazine that illustrate specific garment types in the types of garments chapter, for example, "trench coat."
Students cut out the specific garments from the magazine and write on the back the type of garment and the page number where it appears in the textbook.
Both teams put their fashion photos on the board with room to write underneath.
Working with the photos of the opposite team, the teams try to identify all the garment types.
After all the garments are labeled, turn the pictures over to verify the type of garment in comparison to the textbook.
These games lead to great conversations focused on details of fashion construction.
I learned to see a picture of a garment and know the name of the style. - YB
I was not trying to make the drawing look good. I just wanted to enphasize the detail so my team could understand what was drawn. - DD
We had great discussions while playing games and learning. - SG
My team won and it was awesome. One of the most fun things we have done in this class. - PG
Today in class I illustrate many different garmnets as fast as I could. This was exciting because it shows if you can communicate without words or not. - CH
By not thinking about it as much and just drawing it really fast by observational drawing increased my drawing skills. - BM
I was able to learn from the drawings in the book with the correct terminology. Our team was able to learn together while illustrating the correct item. AP
Using speed to draw something quick and still tell what my point was... HP
I learned you don't have to spend a lot of time drawing to have people understand what you are trying to communicate through your sketches. - NT
The thing I learned today in pictionary was not about being the best drawer but about communication and working as a team. - AT
I learned how to differentiate between the many details of apparel & the elements of garment construction, also I learned "call-to-action". - AT
