The Best Part of Me
We had a bunch of really fun days exploring our shadows using the overhead projector. We asked the children the question, "what's the best part of you?" Then we tried to find the shadow of that part. We talked about that body part and what it does. We asked each child why that was their favorite part.
We invited the children to draw their favorite body part. In many cases there was a good deal of observation and conversation centered around this body part. We noticed things like eyes have "round circles in the middle" and noses have "nostrils" and there are two of them.
All the children's work is hanging in our work room. Use your legs to walk there and your eyes to have a look!
