Here are some pics from last October. My Grade 2's made Frankenstein's Monster Portraits out of construction paper. I was inspired by THESE collages I found on Artsonia from Benfield Elementary School.
I gave kids a choice of orange or purple background paper. Then they went to town cutting and gluing and had a blast. Of course, many of the girls asked if they could make a 'girl version' so I told them about Frankenstein's (Monster's ) Bride.
Lots of discussion here in terms of symmetry and how to create different types of facial expressions and moods. As well, of course, great practice for cutting skills.
I love how funny they all turned out!
