First graders looked into the future and imagined what they would be like as grown ups. They pondered such thoughts as, What will I look like? and What will my career be? I told them that I have always wanted to be an art teacher since I was a little kid (which is partially true except for my brief phase as a fashion designer). They used mirrors to observe their features and noticed that eyes are not just circles with dots and boys have lips and even eyelashes.
Students sketched on big white paper and made a list of things they would need to do their job. There will be many, many artists and art teachers as well as lots of police officers, a couple of scientists, an engineer, a chef, a ninja, and even an astronaut! The kids loved using their imaginations to come up with what they will look like when they are grown ups.

Such ambition and imagination! The kids really loved this project and were so proud of their artwork. 🙂
I am going to try something new here inspired by fitnesscrEATures . . .
When you were little, what did you want to be when you were grown up?
