When I am 100 Years Old

It has been a few weeks now since the 100th day of school at RES, but I had to share some work put together by first graders during enrichment. We had a great discussion around the idea of what it meant to be one hundred years old. Next each student drew a self portrait of themselves today, and then one of what they imagined themselves to be at age 100. Students thought about physical characteristics such as wrinkles, glasses, height, hair, and they also thought of what they might be able to do, like have grandchildren and drive a car!

I also loved to hear the discussion of self portrait techniques. Students expressed that they had learned how to draw a face during art class and they applied this learning when deciding how and where to draw their eyes and other facial features. It is always great to see students make connections and use learning in new situations!

Here are just a few of their projects. Enjoy!
