Let me begin by saying, I LOVE my student teacher! She's just the breath of fresh air that I needed. This is a project that she decided to teach to my 3rd graders. First, students drew a portrait of themselves and colored it. Next, they used watered-down tempera paint to put along their hairline so they could blow the paint in different directions using a straw. We had small cups of the tempera on each table and a brush for each color. We instructed the students to take one 'scoop' of paint and blow it then select another color of paint and blow it again. How fun! You should definately try this project!
