This is a really popular project among the students. It's one of those that every class sees it and wants to do it. It's really a quite simple lesson. We draw our portraits together discussing proportion and placement and fill them in with construction paper crayons. Now the fun part is coming up with a "bandit name." For this I give them the choice to use their first name or last name, but they must use an alliteration when coming up with a word. For the most part I want students to think of adjectives, "describing words," but there are always some exceptions.
Here are last years Wanted students.
