In order to make this project more personal we created self-portraits as outlaws from the old west. I couldn't stand the thought of my students as criminals so our wanted posters are filled with reasons that the kids are wanted by friends and family... GOOD reasons! Some kids were wanted for doing super helpful things like feeding the cat or taking their shoes off by the door 1,000 times. Others were wanted because of how they act: caring, kind, funny, etc. The kids had a blast with this one!
Learning Goals: I can...
- Tell about the Old West
- Create a self-portrait
- Give 3 positive reasons that I am wanted by my friends and family
- Use good craftsmanship when coloring, cutting and gluing
