Question and Wonder:

  • How do shapes, tones, textures and position make my face unique and different from others?
  • What parts of my face are similar to facial features of my family members? How is it different?

Imagine and Design:

  • What types of natural items would best fit how I view myself? When I feel my cheek, it is soft and when I rub my hand through my hair, it is course.
  • Collect items that will help create your self portrait.

Test and Discuss:

  • Arrange your collected items and glue onto the construction paper to represent your self portrait.
  • Show a family member and tell them about your self portrait.
