About Faces and Fractions

Third graders review concepts of fractions, and one-half. They discuss self portraits and the relationships of eyes, nose and mouth to the whole face. Students create base-line self-portraits. On the second day, 3rd graders observe and draw their faces as they look into mirrors. They create two preliminary drawings of their face. Day three, the teacher demonstrates creating tone for smooth areas using colored pencils, and students add color to their portraits.

Lesson plans are so much easier to write with all the ideas I get from Lesson Planet. As a student teacher I really appreciate the ideas and experience I can get from other teachers.
