Drawing in Perspective

In the Renaissance Connection perspective interactive, students can practice drawing the orthogonals over Renaissance paintings (very suitable for the Smartboard). The title links to the ever-useful "artsconnected" web pages, which have a cute Flash animation explaining simple one-point perspective, which I've been using with my third graders. A cool extension interactive for whiteboards is at Tate Kids (build an imaginary city)...Some elementary students "get" perspective easily, others take longer, but once they do, everyone is smiling & excited.
