The lesson always starts out with talking about the shape of our head. Then, how our EYES are half way between the top of our head and our chin. Our NOSE is half way between our eyes and our chin AND our MOUTH is half way between our nose and our chin. EARS are located on the side of our head between our eyes and our nose. I touch my face as I explain this and encourage them to locate all of this on their faces. And NO EYES on our foreheads........ please!
My 4th and 5th graders did 3 D portraits. I had found out about this project at one of my district planning days where we do a meet and share.
It is really fun when you have "Crazy Hat Day" during the week you teach this!!
As I mentioned, last week was hectic! I now have a new grand daughter, that I had the opportunity to see as she was being born. A big THANK YOU to my son-in-law for giving me this incredible memory.
Thanks for reading! I would love to know about the self portraits you do with your students!!
