Who We Are: 1st grade self portraits

Originally, these were going to be realistic self portraits.  But as we were creating realistic portraits, I noticed that my 1st graders really wanted to defy the rules of reality through their use of color and form.  I ended up making this a two part assignment.  Yes, students had to make a realistic portrait.  But they also had to make an imaginary one! 
We used the rules of symmetry to fold our paper and cut it to make a symmetrical head, eyes, mouth, and nose.
