Definition

To closely examine and describe details.

  2. Examine a work of art and describe its features. 

In the classroom

Kindergarten teachers Kristin Roberts and Rachel Magruder developed a lesson that illustrates the Prism.K12 strategy Identify. Students were first asked to draw their responses to the question, "What is your favorite part of your school day?" From initial drawings, students were then asked to take a closer look and identify subjects with greater detail. In this final collaborative artwork, notice the richness of these details from "share time" to kickball games.
