|'Opportunities to look closely at the subject helps|
children to gather visual information'
The cricket created lots of interest. After looking closely at it in the jar and discussing its details, Tui-belle and Dihansa went on to make some drawings. This is called 'drawing from observation' and helps children to notice the finer details of the subject.
Tui-belle's and Dihansa's drawing and work then became the inspiration for other children to make a study of a cricket.
