The Linden Tree:  Drawing   The first assignment for a group of young students is usually to count the number of people in the class and fold a long piece of paper into that many equal sections. Each student then draws every member, including her/himself, one per section, accompanied by that student's name. This exercise helps the student to become aware of classmates, learn each of their names and the spelling thereof and to see themselves as a member of a group. It provides counting practice for those who need it, and teaches methods of dividing a page (providing along the way a non-numerical introduction to division).
