"I See Me"

We read this quote today and thought back to all our self-portraits we have made this year.

Then we examined pictures from nature and explored the idea of line symmetry.  We looked at animals, flowers, shells and thought about how some things demonstrate symmetry and some do not.  We also looked at a portrait of a girl where the photographer pointed out that faces are typically asymmetrical.  In answer to the question, "can we make a face symmetrical," the children used half a photograph taken this year to create a symmetrical self-portrait.  This is not an easy task and the results were so wonderful!  This was the perfect segue from our MIA trip yesterday and our recent Magic Tree House book about the Mona Lisa.

We titled the portraits "I See Me."  They are on the lockers so come check them out!
