The return of the lego self portraits. You've probably seen these/my face floating around Pinterest (or at least I'm told by my fellow colleagues that my face is plastered on Pinterest). The original project I did last year brought some major traffic to my blog. I think part of the reason, along with the fact that legos are just awesome, was that shortly after I posted the project The Lego Movie came out and Lego Mania was upon us.
This is probably one of my all time favorite lessons. We cover a lot of information and it is fun, the kids love it and all find some sort of success! The majority of this lesson is done with crayon, a few students did choose to use marker on the background. To see a more detailed description of the lesson go here.
I'm amazed as to how much I can see the resemblances in some of the portraits and I can pick out which lego belongs to each student.
