PROJECT OVERVIEW-PURPOSE: This is so much fun!!!
Just the name "Puff Portraits" gets the kids thinking! Lesson plan will provide
a fun and creative "back to school" activity as the students create their own self-portrait, and the follow-up activities help the children get to know their new classmates.
The project will also create an awareness of the placement of facial features and 3-dimension, while reinforcing basic cutting and gluing skills through a fun craftivity. PATTERNS are provided if teacher elects to simplify the lesson, as written, thus, providing 2 different approaches.
Follow-up activities help to bring the children together as a class - also, a great lesson throughout the school year.
