This is something I did in my classroom this year when I was talking to my preschool class about how we are all different, yet the same. It is a wall display of the children in my preschool classroom. The children were asked to search for their own eyes and when the parents came in later that day, I asked them to find their child's eyes too!
Our Room: An Environment Created for Investigating
I have worked very hard to create an environment that beckons kids to explore. I love the Reggio Emilia philosophy of the environment...
A great way to start out the year is with a study of self or a self-portrait. We started ours with body tracing in pencil which was fun, and provide the physical challenge of staying completely still for a bit. Now the children are using recycled fabric scraps to represent clothing.
