    Enlarge student fingerprints and have kids write about themselves on the lines (About Me)--I've done something similar as and art project where they look at their finger print and draw the lines themselves with alternating colored pencils. Teaches them to look and see what they are drawing.

    Thumb print art: all need for this is an ink pad, white paper, something to write with (maybe fun colored pencils or markers) and a photocopier. First, let every student make a fingerprint onto white paper. Next, blow up their fingerprints using the photocopier (8×10 or larger). Then, Have your kids write words and phrases about themselves along the lines and whorls of their fingerprints, and sign
