Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I just did this project with my students as a beginning of the school activity! It was awesome and the pictures were great! After a couple lessons about symmetry and having them find the line of symmetry in shapes, letters, nature etc, I had them practice drawing objects...then themselves! I was really amazed at how well they did considering the school year has just begun...day 4 to be exact! I modeled how to use the ruler to measure, but they were not really ready for that so I had them use rulers to make sure their facial features lined up.
Thanks again for posting such a great activity! I will be doing this again for years to come!
