Bad Hair Day, 3rd Grade

This project was a lot of fun, and the kids liked it too. I began this lesson by teaching students the basic proportions of the human face. Then students drew crazy wild hair styles.
I did this project in two different ways. In the first class, I had them color them. In the second, I had them leave it black and white. I am partial to the black and white version. However, coloring was nice too.
Some of my students decided to hide things in the tangle of hair. One student actually put a rat crawling inside the hair. I thought that was incredibly creative. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of that one. Next time I do this lesson, I may encourage students to hide things in the hair.
