State Heads

State Heads

Summary:

Students will create an narrative within the shape of a state (or province) using personal experience. They will choose a state, review that state and draw a picture using the shape of the state as a template.

What You Need:

  • template of a state (we used Ohio)
  • pencils
  • crayons
  • colored pencils
  • large drawing or construction paper

What You Do:

  1. Review state facts, whatever state you choose.
  2. Review shape of the state.
  3. Students draw the state on the upper left hand side of large drawing paper — allowing room for hair and a speech bubble to the right.
  4. Encourage students to incorporate sentences inside the speech bubble:
    • Hello my name is _____.
    • I live in ______,city, state (ie: Dayton, Ohio).
    • I am good at ______.
    • My state is known for _______.
  5. Students then detail their state head with facial features.
  6. Encourage your students to really add their own personality to these wonderful heads.
