We are back to school after our unexpected four day weekend. I’ve been meaning to share one of my 7th graders first projects. I always like to have something up for Open House, so I had students trace their hand and arm on tagboard. They searched through magazines for images, words, designs and colors that described their personality and collaged their hand. Each student also cut out the letters of their name as a final touch. I love the way the hands turned out. Each one is truly full of personality- it really helpd me to get to know my students too. I painted this little sign for the center of the wall and we taped the hands right to the wall radiating from it. This is just a portion of the installation. The hands ended up filling the whole wall! Fun :).
