Peer Portraits

The Grasshoppers extended on drawing their own self portraits to drawing portraits of their peers. 

They sat across from their chosen friend and talked about the similarities and differences that made them unique. 

Children pointed out who had the same eye colour and who had different hair colour. 

Children celebrated what made them unique such as differently located freckles. 

Children grasped pencils in pincer grasps in their dominant hands and began to draw and sketch. 

Marks were made to form the shape of their peers. 

Children gave meaning to the marks they drew. 

At the end everyone sowed their friends their creations and made comparisons.
