Biography Silhouettes

I introduced Author's purpose a few weeks ago to the students.  You can read about the "persuasion" writing assignment and grab a freebie here.

The children just finished their final drafts.  The final touch was to have each child make a silhouette of their partner.

Time to trace

The kids did a great job and they all came out pretty good.

There were a few kids where I had to draw their nose or lips back on though. :)

After the students cut them out, we added the write ups.  The children had a chance to share theirs with the class and they are now on display for all to see.

It was the perfect segway into our biography studies this month.

  1. Wow! What a responsibility to do this for a partner. No pressure or anything. I love making them accountable though. Great!
