This project, if you can believe it, is from LAST APRIL! I had completely forgotten about it until I was going through old pictures on my iPhone. I chose to do this project because the grade 2 class was studying different countries, and each student was doing a project on a country of their choice (most of which related to their heritage.) I decided that instead of doing the standard cartoony-self portraits that I had planned on doing with them, we would up the ante a little bit by coloring their faces using the colors and design of their country of choice's flag. I made the example below using Iceland (I have no ties to that country, except I had just returned from my trip there the week before we began this project.)
Here are some of the finished projects! I'll be honest, I really can't remember what countries these flags represent.
They're cute, right? They were a nice tie-in with their country projects. Can't believe I forgot about these until now!
