*UPDATE* Falling back in space self-portraits, 3rd Grade

Oh the sound of the OoooOoo's and Ahhhh's when these got hung in the hallway today could have been heard from across the street. These were a HIT!

My kids want to do this! What size paper did you use?

These look awesome. How many class periods did they take to complete?

I actually did this project with my teens in junior high. The one on the blog was done by me though. The girls are still working on theirs.
I really appreciated it since extreme foreshortening has always been really tricky for me.
Thanks so much for sharing!

I can see why they got ooo's and aaah's. What a great way to teach the sometimes difficult concept of foreshortening to 3rd graders. (or any grader for that matter).

Lovin your blog. I found it on art projects for kids, another incredible blog.
